Weâre the only university in the UK offering this British Psychological Society accredited degree. Itâs ideal if you want to specialise in this area and set yourself apart from other psychology graduates.
Our degree will help you understand people and their unusual behaviours, emotions and thoughts.

Our unique degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society.
