This conversion course will provide a solid practical and theoretical background in psychology for students who have not studied the subject before. You will graduate with the fundamental knowledge and skills that are needed in a variety of different professions in psychology.
This course is also suitable for students who have already obtained a degree in psychology, but who now wish to also gain a psychology degree that is accredited by the British Psychological Society.
Topics covered include biological, cognitive, developmental, and social psychology, as well as individual differences and conceptual and historical issues in psychology.
You will learn about the full breadth of psychological research techniques, including experiments, surveys, and observation. As part of your practical project, you will work closely with a member of academic staff to complete a research dissertation in a selected area.
You should hold, or expect to hold a first or second class honours degree in any subject. This course is not for graduates who already have a BPS accredited degree.
