An understanding of psychology and human behaviour is an asset to any profession, as most jobs involve interaction with other people. Designed to equip students with a broad range of skills and experiences that may lead into teaching, health, social care or business, the course will help to develop subject-specific and employment-related skills. Exploring the historical, methodological and theoretical bases of the discipline, students will develop an understanding of psychology in an applied content. Encouraged to work more independently and cooperatively within small groups, lab reports, essays, presentations, posters and applied reports will be produced with a focus on chosen specialist areas. 

On successful completion of this course, students will be able to apply psychological theory to practical situations and understand ethical issues in psychological research and therapy.
