Our new range of liberal studies degrees provides a true US-style liberal arts education, a first in the UK. In your foundation year you undertake a general education programme which provides a comprehensive foundation for your degree studies. From the first year of your degree, you choose a ‘major’ subject area whilst taking a range of ‘electives’ to tailor your degree to match your passions and interests. Every module in our liberal studies programme has been specifically designed for the degree, delivering you a broad-based education which engages you in critical and interdisciplinary thinking. Liberal arts graduates are well-prepared to make the most of opportunities in a fast-moving global economy.
The study of psychology applies the scientific method to understand and predict human behaviour and experience.
The core of the programme constitutes an in-depth examination of the scientific approach to understanding human behaviour and experience including the study of topics such as personality, decision-making, memory, neuroscience, mental disorder, and social interaction.
The Psychology Major teaches the major areas of the discipline and covers theoretical and applied aspects of the science. At the higher level, you will study a range of more advanced options which explore specific areas of psychology in greater depth including sexuality, cultural differences and similarities, and evolution and behaviour.
This is a four-year, full time programme.
Degree Level Modules
You will benefit from close supervision and guidance throughout your learning, via seminars, tutorials, lab classes and group work.
We encourage you to gain increasing independence in your own research endeavours.
The programme also includes visits to key sites within London, such as the Freud Museum, to illustrate the development of psychology throughout history.
Students with disabilities
Some of our courses encourage trips outside of the campus. If you have a condition that affects your mobility you are advised to contact the Disability Officer.
The study of Psychology imparts a highly transferable set of skills and is a popular subject with potential employers.
Many Psychology majors go on to work in professions that require statistical and analytical thought and independent research such as civil service, local government, consultancy. Additionally the degree also equips students with transferable skills useful to a career in marketing, media, and the creative industries.
Furthermore, combining psychology with other subjects gives graduates a wide base on which to build their career aspirations.
This programme will also enable you to consider progressing to the MSc Psychology to gain BPS accreditation in order to pursue a professional career in Psychology.
