  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
The BSc (Hons) Psychology is a three-year full-time course (usually six years if taken part-time), that provides a comprehensive coverage of all the most important areas in psychology. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). In your first two years with us you study a number of compulsory modules that cover a broad range of psychological sub-disciplines such as social, cognitive, health, clinical, developmental, and psychodynamic psychology, to name but a few. In the final level (your third year if you study full time), you will get to choose a number of optional, specialist modules. We run a slightly different range of specialist modules each year, depending on staff expertise. To get a feel for the sorts of topics we teach for these modules, please see the staff list. Other information about the department is here. As you progress through the course, you will gain in independence as you complete a series of modules designed to support you in becoming an independent psychological researcher. In your final year, you will choose from a wide range of specialised modules, as well as completing an individual research project. The course places emphasis on a problem-based learning approach. Right from the start, you will gain knowledge and skills through hands-on work with psychological data, examining issues from across the spectrum of human psychology. You will also examine various philosophical approaches to psychology in order to be able to evaluate, critique and question current psychological thinking. The psychology department organises a range of different learning experiences, ranging from lectures and seminars to group tutorials and research practicals. There's something to suit all tastes. You will specialise in human psychology throughout the course and will receive support from personal tutors who are expert in relevant areas of both applied and theoretical psychology who will be in a position to support your learning. We believe our system of personal tutoring contributes considerably to the success of our students through regular progress reviews and opportunities for careers advice. The Psychology Department at the University of Wolverhampton offers state-of-the-art facilities in which to study, including dedicated research and computer labs with specialist testing software, an observation room with a one-way mirror, video equipment, a psychological test library, plus much more. Many of our general psychology graduates go on to apply their skills in the business world. Employers are keen to recruit psychology graduates, perhaps because of their impressive mix of inter-personal skills and understanding of data analysis and theory testing. A number of our graduates go on to train as Clinical, Counselling or Forensic Psychologists, to work in the NHS as trainee cognitive behavioural therapists, or to work in other helping professions such as social work. By choosing a BPS-accredited degree at the University of Wolverhampton, you will be ensuring you have access to a broad range of careers in future. Each year, our graduates go on to apply the knowledge they have gained with us to a wide range of jobs in the private, public and non-profit sectors.

I met some lovely people at Wolves, and had a fantastic time here. The town was alright, certainly not as bad as everyone says – you just have to be prepared to go on the tram to Brum if you want some variety on your nights out, but there’s loads of shops in town so you’ll never want for anything. The lecturers and staff were fantastic, and there are loads of amazing sports facilities there with some great teams that really helped me make new, lasting mates.
