This fascinating programme combines a BPS-accredited psychology degree with counselling and mental health modules. Learn from research-active staff at the best modern university in Scotland for psychology research.
Why do people behave in the way they do? What makes people react in certain ways? How can mental health issues be treated? This innovative degree allows you to develop a scientific understanding of human behaviour and combine it with a knowledge of mental health and counselling skills.
Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes, and the relation between the two. It explores how we act and interact, both as individuals and in groups, and the thoughts and feelings that motivate our behaviour.
Counselling is concerned with the integration of psychological theory with interventions and therapeutic practice. As a student on this course, you will develop a scientific understanding of psychology as a discipline and practical skills in counselling and therapy.
