Content

The course contains 75% psychology and 25% management and is accredited by the British Psychological Society. The ‘psychology’ component of the course contains elements of social psychology, developmental psychology, biological psychology, cognitive psychology, individual differences, and research methods. The ‘management’ component contains several ‘streams’. The general stream contains elements of all the core components of management, namely marketing, human resource management, finance, and management. The management component of the course also contains four more specialised streams that focus on solely one of the four core components. The degree reflects our emphasis on links between psychology and those professional fields in which it is commonly used; and as such help to maintain the distinctiveness of our offering and further establish our reputation for teaching and research in applied psychology. While psychology is used of course in the context of a variety of professional settings (most notably clinical, forensic, and educational contexts) many psychology graduates go on to a career in business, and the course content reflects this.
