Bachelor Degree , Psychology

Course Description

This course will equip you with advanced skills in the German language, as well as offering a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history of the German-speaking lands. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. This single honours course course will furnish you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and culture of modern Germany and Austria. You will also have the added bonus of studying Dutch in your second year which opens up further horizons within Europe. 

This ‘pure psychology’ course will allow you to gain a scientific understanding of the basic processes by which we learn, think, feel and adapt to our social conditions.

The course covers the investigation of behaviour from infancy to old age, and deals with the biological, social and individual factors that affect human psychology. This course offers you the widest possible choice of modules, which enables you to tailor your study as your interests develop.

The first year of the course is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of psychology. It is designed to provide a thorough grounding in the subject for those with no Psychology background while allowing those who have already studied Psychology to increase the breadth and depth of their understanding. The second year continues on the same basis enabling graduates to cover all the core topics to be eligible for the BPS Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership. Year three completes your BSc with a major research project and an in-depth study of at least four topics selected from the full range of modules that are currently available.
