BA (Hons), Full-time
, Duration: 4 Years
**A highly popular programme which is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), our BA degree in Psychology will enable you to explore the fascinating world of human behaviour. Learn about memory, language, creativity, personality, social interaction and brain processes and the reasons for psychological differences between people.**
Based at our campuses in Richmond and Kensington in London, youâll gain a thorough understanding of both the theory and practical application of psychology, as our programme prepares you for a professional career in psychology or any number of career opportunities.
Like our other undergraduate programmes, our BA in Psychology is based on the American liberal arts tradition, which offers a multi-disciplinary approach. So alongside an introduction to Psychology and the History of Childhood in your first year, youâll also study Research and Writing and Creative Expression, with students from other disciplines, making a truly international education.
Youâll also have the advantage of studying for one degree and acquiring two â one from the UK and one from the US.
In the second year youâll dig deeper into the discipline as you study Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Biological Psychology. An exciting range of subjects are on offer in the final two years, from Cognitive Neuroscience to Experimental Methods in Psychology, with really interesting electives where you can specialise such as Psychology and Cinema; the Psychology of Happiness and Well-being; Clinical Psychology and Criminology.
Youâll have the opportunity to be a member of the only Psi Chi chapter in the UK, the International Honor Society in Psychology, which aims to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship, and to advance the science of psychology. Many of the Societyâs members have gone on to distinguished careers in psychology.
Develop your research skills through our Mind in Society Psychology Research Centre, which organises talks and conferences on such issues as the concept of resilience and how individuals and communities bounce back after adversity.
As a student of Psychology at Richmond, you will get access to our new Psychology Laboratory to design and conduct your own research with faculty supervision (we have a full-time Lab technician). The Psychology Lab hosts over 40 students actively engaged in research each semester. Itâs fantastic preparation for your next steps upon graduation, either further study as a postgraduate student or in a position of employment.
