Psychological Studies

The programme is designed to introduce graduates from other disciplines to the study of psychology as a first step to pursuing a career in this area. Students study how we perceive our environment; how we think, learn and remember; how we communicate and interact with others; how we differ from one another in personality and abilities; and how all these change and develop throughout our lifetimes. The course will introduce you to the study of psychology and provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue a career in psychology or in other areas where a scientific understanding of human behaviour is important.

Entry requirements

Applicants must have at least a lower second Class Honours degree (or equivalent) in any discipline. Some prior study of Psychology at University Undergraduate Level would be preferred, but is not essential.

Course modules

Modules include: Introduction to methods and analysis in psychology; biological psychology; perception; psychological assessment; advanced methods and analysis in psychology; developmental psychology; memory and language; social psychology.

Assessment methods

Assessment throughout the programme includes written coursework assignments, examinations, and the research project.
