This programme will allow you to explore these areas from a broad range of perspectives, increasingly led by you as you move towards the specialist options in years two and three.

Programme structure

This course will give you detailed and balanced knowledge of this fascinating subject. You will also develop your analytical and evaluative skills.

Through course assessments you’ll gain key skills such as team work, how to give engaging presentations, writing concise reports, and analysing data effectively.

The first year of this full-time programme will include core modules providing a background in Behavioural Sciences which include: Psychological Research Methods, Making Sense of Society, An Introduction to Psychology: Developmental & Social, Biological & Cognitive and Personality and Applied Psychology, and An Introduction to Cross Disciplinary Psychology.

The second year will include more core modules providing a more in-depth understanding of four key areas in the Behavioural Sciences which include: Biopsychology, Developmental Psychology, Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology and Personality and Individual Differences. You will also be required to pick four options from a broad range of modules from Psychology, Criminology, Sociology and Sports Psychology.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in visits relating to your chosen modules such as: prisons, courts, hospitals, epilepsy centres, and even prisoner of war camps.

In the final year you will be asked to complete a literature based dissertation as well as the last core module (Social Psychology). You will also be required to pick four more options from a broad range of options coming from Psychology, Criminology, Sociology and Policing.
