This new BPS-accredited degree provides a rich understanding of quantitative research methods and the main theoretical areas of psychology, with a special focus on various areas of education. It will have particular appeal if you are interested in working with children, young people, schools, families/parents, and within other educational settings.
You'll develop a breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding across selected core content areas of psychology, such as biological psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, personality and individual differences, and social psychology. Later in the course, optional modules enable you to tailor content to your own interests and ambitions. Throughout the course you'll gain an understanding of psychological research methods, such as ethical considerations, research design, data analysis, and psychological measurement. In particular, you'll focus on theories and research findings related to education and learning.
The course forms an excellent basis for undertaking professional qualifications, further postgraduate study and wider careers. You'll graduate with expertise in both subjects, and insight into their intersection, as well as transferable skills including critical thinking and reasoning, problem solving, research analysis and critical judgement.

Located within beautiful woodland scenery, Warwick is often described as being 'in a field'. Although this is true (and you'll appreciate the beautiful streams and open space), the campus is a short bus ride from Coventry city so depending on what you fancy you can really get the best of both worlds. The social events are fantastic once you're on-board, and there's plenty to do if getting drunk midweek isn't your thing.
