This Psychology degree will introduce you to the main disciplines of social, developmental, cognitive and biological psychology - plus individual differences and research methods. The course examines how this information can apply in the real world, in terms of general employment and careers in psychology. You'll also have the opportunity to take optional courses from other subjects like biological sciences, management, or languages.
Teaching is mainly through lectures. But, this Psychology degree also includes lots of tutorials, which means that you can really get to know our staff. Assessment is a mixture of coursework and exams.
