BSc Hons Psychology

Psychology tackles on every aspect of life because it is the study of human beings, their behaviours, cognitive skills, emotions and development. Furthermore, who you are, your future self, and your choices are determined by your relationships and the way you interact with other people.
A degree in Psychology is a great way to better understand yourself, the world that surround you and all the dynamics that guide human life, so that you can improve both your life and your career skills.
Here are just a few great reasons why we think you should learn the main theories and findings of Psychology:

• As you learn more about how development occurs, how personality forms, and how factors like society and culture impact behaviour, you might learn to identify the characteristics and situations that have impacted your own life so that you can exert a certain degree of control on them;
• You will learn more about topics such as the scientific method, decision-making, and problem-solving, all of which might help you raise your ability to think deeply and critically about different issues;
• Having a basic understanding of psychological research methods can help you better understand some of the many claims that you will read in books, magazines, professional journals, as well as in television shows, and movies. Becoming a better informed consumer of Psychology means that you will be equipped to sort out the truth from the fiction surrounding many common myths about Psychology;
• You will be able to better understand the influences and motivations behind somebody’s actions, increasing as a result your capacity to make predictions on other people’s behaviours and feelings. Studying subjects such as emotion, language, and body language can help you tune into with others and improve your interpersonal communication skills. The latter are usually very well appreciated and useful in any professional path you are willing to pursue.

It is not a coincidence that about most of psychology graduates go on to careers related to or outside of psychology.

The reason being is that studying for an undergraduate degree in psychology can help you to prepare more broadly for a variety of careers by developing your mind, mature judgement and graduate skills.

This is particularly important if you are seeking a career which is not necessarily in clinical psychology (e.g. occupational Psychology, human error, HR, consumer behaviour analyst, social worker, research in Psychology and so on), but you still want to pursue psychology as your main professional skillset.

Because different areas of psychology encompass a range of topics including philosophy, biology, and physiology, this will finally help you gain a richer understanding of these related areas.

Our BSc Hons Psychology promotes critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity with respect to psychological, social and communicational issues.
