At Regent's you’ll have the freedom to explore your interests in a supportive and nurturing environment with interactive classes, regular one-to-one contact with tutors, specialist facilities, industry opportunities and tailored careers advice – ensuring you develop the skills, experience and confidence you need to succeed.
This unique course offers innovative practice-based learning opportunities, with opportunities to participate in research, experiments and London field trips – taking everything you learn in the classroom into the real world.
In year one, you'll discover the fundamentals of psychology through workshops, small group exercises and flipped learning that prioritises 'giving it a go'. In year two, you'll engage with applications of psychology in practice, through theory, research, case studies and popular media. In year three, you'll deepen your critical, reflective and evaluative abilities via a holistic focus on psychological literacy and intervention – learning through dialogue, experiential activities and seminars.
Contact hours: 14 hours per week (based on two 12-week terms and 120 credits per year).
You'll be taught by a multi-disciplinary team of dedicated and experienced academics and practitioners, who share a common passion for psychology in all its diversity. The core team includes researchers, practitioner psychologists and subject experts, many of whom are international leaders in their field – but you'll also learn from academics in areas such as marketing, fashion and business. Their knowledge and experience ensure your classes are shaped by the most current industry practices.
You’ll also benefit from regular guest speakers. A recent example is Dr Nayeli Gonzalez-Gomez – an expert in language development.
Throughout the course, you'll be expected to undertake extra reading, personal research and reflection, as well as preparing work for workshops, presentations and working collaboratively with students in preparation for assessment.
