Content

BSc Psychology places more emphasis on theoretical rather than practical issues and will represent provision of the core subject matter. Final year students take a theoretically - and experimentally-oriented project (which comprises 25% of the final degree classification), and all other aspects of coursework similarly emphasis theory over practice. Students will have the opportunity to take optional and elective modules from School of Life Sciences and School of Management and Languages (three in Year 1, two in Year 2, and in one in Year 3).
