Accredited by the British Psychological Society, this course is designed for those wishing to pursue a professional career in psychology. You will be guided through your studies, and during your final year in designing your very own research project, by practising researchers. Our staff are internationally renowned as academic leaders in their respective fields and you will enjoy innovative and enthusiastic teaching through an exciting range of core and optional modules. These modules will cover all elements of psychology; from the biological level focusing on the structure of the nervous system; the cognitive level which examines memory, language and perception; as well as the examining how people interact on a social level.
In your first year, you are introduced to the core areas of biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology. Lectures and tutorials on these core areas are accompanied by lectures in statistical methods and practical classes, teaching you to plan, conduct and report psychology experiments. Your second year psychology modules follow on from the core first-year modules, tackling similar topics in greater depth and dealing with more advanced theoretical problems. You will develop an increasing independence in your practical work, which comprises a series of five-week group projects. In the third year, one third of your credits come from a year-long research project. In this you will design and carry out the research yourself with supervision from a staff member..
