Programme Overview

You’ll explore the five main psychological perspectives: biological, cognitive, developmental, individual differences and social. You’ll learn about research methods, and you’ll engage with the historical and conceptual underpinnings of psychology throughout the course. You’ll also learn to leverage science to the benefit of your fellow students, industry and for social good.

You’ll cover the content and skills that define a Psychology graduate, and you’ll have the opportunity to look at conceptual and career possibilities that you may not have previously considered.
