How you'll learn
At Regent's, you will have the freedom to explore your interests in a supportive and nurturing environment with interactive classes, 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.
The BA (Hons) Psychology course offers a uniquely innovative learning experience. At the centre of your learning will be you - your past, your present and your future - your story will be interwoven into a reflective journey of personal learning and development.
You will enjoy a rich and rewarding mix of learning activities relevant to psychological work - active participation, listening to your peers, debating, presenting, reflecting and solving problems, developing your research skills and learning through experience.
You will also take psychology out of the classroom and into London - gaining practical industry and project experience while building your network.
Most of all, you will change - building the confidence and the practical, academic, personal and interpersonal skills you need to take what you have learned forward into the next stage of your life.
Year 1: Discover
Year 1 will be your first chance to discover new ideas and have a go. You will learn how to ask and answer different kinds of questions in psychology and explore popular culture, media, history, philosophy, art and literature through workshops, self-directed learning, small group exercises and debates. You will also learn about language, power and discrimination across the individual and collective systems of psychology.
Year 2: Apply
Year 2 will bring your focus to the many ways psychology can be applied to help others in industry and in our technological and socio-cultural ecosystems. Experts and visiting practitioners will offer 'day in the life' insights as you gain soft psychological skills and a real-world grasp of the pathways available to you in the future - exploring these through live engagements, independent learning projects, workshops, life-story and role play.
Year 3: Create
Year 3 will deepen your critical, reflective and evaluative skills in psychology. You will become psychologically literate and creatively bring together your understanding of theory, research, practice, society and ethics. You will learn about holistic psychological issues such as trauma and life span development, which affect everyone over time and across borders and explore academic, creative, popular and practice-based materials
via workshops, seminars, dialogues and supervision.

Your independent learning
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.
How you'll be assessed
Assessments will build your experience and confidence in many skills and activities relevant to psychology - presenting new ideas, working in groups, analysing problems, building case reports, personal and professional planning, reflection and evaluation.
