Psychology

This programme aims to provide graduates in disciplines other than psychology with the opportunity to obtain the Graduate Basis for Chartered membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). Students will examine the nature of personality and individual differences, including intelligence, developmental patterns and changes in social and cognitive abilities, interpersonal behaviour and the impact of social contexts on behaviour. Exploring cognitive language and biological psychology, students will gain an understanding of the role of biology in underpinning behaviour and the nature of attention, perception, language and memory.
