The course is intellectually challenging and is underpinned by the strong research ethos in our school. You will develop your understanding of psychological theories and concepts, and gain the knowledge, analytical tools and skills you need to assess and conduct psychological research.
You will be introduced to core areas of psychology via modules covering biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, and personality and individual differences. As well as lectures and tutorials in these core areas, you will also have lectures in statistical methods, and practical classes, in which you will learn to plan, conduct, and report psychology experiments.
You will study modules that follow on from your core first year modules, tackling similar topics in greater depth and dealing with more advanced theoretical problems. In practical classes you will refine your skills in planning, implementing, and reporting psychological research.
You will be able to choose advanced modules from a range of options. You will also complete a year-long research project. In this you will design and carry out the research yourself with supervision from one of our academic staff.
