The Faculty of Psychology offers a range of modules which allows students to specialise in an area of expertise, with a range of optional modules in the final year. Our programmes cover a range of sub-disciplines in psychology, and provide an engaging and exciting balance in terms of current issues, theoretical analysis and historical context. You will focus on the psychological mechanisms underlying human behaviour and associated brain activity, using both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
Our programmes will provide you with the opportunity to develop a specialised skill set as our curricula are designed around inquiry- and evidence-based activities; we think that this helps students to develop their own research interest, and eventually will aid the process of choosing your career, as well as to further your education through and MSc or even by applying for research funding such as PhDs or Doctorates.
During your lectures, seminars, online forums and discussion groups you will also acquire a wealth of transferable skills that are sought after by employers, such as time-management, adaptability, confidence, taking initiative, decision-making, problem solving, commitment, ability to work in a team as well as independently.
