You’ll develop a knowledge and understanding of the mind and human behaviour by examining a wide range of subjects. There are various opportunities to conduct mini experiments throughout your course, and in your final year you'll work closely with a member of the academic team to carry out your own experiment, developing vital research skills along the way. Later, you'll be encouraged to specialise in a field of psychology that particularly interests you, such as education, forensic, clinical or environmental psychology, thus bringing the degree in line with your future career aspirations.
