This course allows you to study business and combine this with the scientific study of human behaviour. Studying Business will enable you to develop your knowledge of how businesses operate and how to manage finance, people, and the production of products and services. Psychology focuses on the central areas of psychological enquiry including cognitive, social, health and developmental psychology and the methods used for the study of human behaviour. If you major in psychology in Years 2 and 3, pass the dissertation research project, and achieve at least a 2:2 degree classification, you will be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society.

Your career prospects after the course

Studying a combined honours degree gives you the opportunity to improve your employability by developing skills and knowledge in two subjects.

The study of business provides a sound basis for employment in a large variety of roles, for example in human resources, people management, accounting and finance, marketing, and manufacturing.

Other areas of employment can include roles in counselling, health care, or social work.

You could also apply to join professional bodies or go on to postgraduate study.

Students who major in psychology in years 2 and 3, pass their dissertation research project and graduate with a second class honours degree or above will be eligible for Graduate Basis Registration with the British Psychological Society.

This is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist
