Course Description

Our psychology graduates have a strong record of employment building careers in business, teaching, counselling, nursing, probation work and market research.

Psychology is the science of behaviour and the mind. It uses a variety of scientific methods to explore key areas, including: the influence that our biology has on behaviour; the ways in which we develop from early infancy to adulthood; the ways in which we perceive, think, solve problems and make decisions; and the way we interact with each other. All of these approaches enable theories to be developed and tested within psychology. Our programmes focus on problems in the real world and consider how psychology can help us to address it.

Psychologists work in settings such as education, health and mental ill-health, sport and exercise, systems design, the environment, and forensic and criminological analysis, where theory and practice come together.
