Psychology is the scientific study of experience and behaviour - why we act the way we do, how we interact with other people and the emotional significance we attach to this. Psychological studies have gained increasing importance across a wide range of activities, including human resources, education, sport, social care and the creative industries.

Indicative Course Content

This programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and enables students to gain a scientific understanding of the mind, brain, behaviour and experience, and of the complex interactions between those. Practical experiments are used as a foundation for understanding and explanation. This is a feature of the programme which runs throughout the three levels.

The key theoretical areas:

  • cognitive psychology and neuropsychology
  • developmental psychology
  • individual differences
  • social psychology
  • biological psychology are introduced at level one, and further developed at levels two and three.

Optional Modules include:

There are opportunities to select optional modules such as evolutionary psychology and to specialise in the practical application of theory to a range of disciplines, including sport and exercise, health, business, marketing, early years, education, and the creative arts. The first year of the programme also introduces research methods, both quantitative and qualitative, which are developed over the next two years to give students the confidence to undertake their own projects. There is an option at level 3 to take a year out or arrange a summer placement in order to apply your understanding to practice. In the final year, all students will have the opportunity to undertake a specialised Research Project.

Why this Course?

  • A practical focus to the application of psychology to real world situations.
  • The opportunity to undertake your own research in an area of interest to you in Year 3
  • Staff with experience in a range of disciplines who are highly qualified and enthusiastic about their work.
  • A supportive learning environment

A first degree in psychology, with status of the Graduate Basis for Registration (GBR) with the BPS provides a foundation for you to progress to specialist areas of psychology, and subsequent status as a Chartered Psychologist. There are currently 10 professional Divisions within the BPS, including Clinical Psychology, Educational Psychology, Sport and Exercise Psychology.

All of these have professional training programmes, for which the attainment of GBR is essential. Whilst nationally, less than one psychology graduate in every five ultimately takes up work as a professional psychologist, psychology provides a good insight into human behaviour that equips graduates with the skills that enable them to work in a wide range of fields.

Careers

Students will initially study at an introductory level, and thus it is not a requirement to have studied psychology at 'A' level.' As well as providing a sound basis for work as a professional psychologist, a psychology degree at the University of Chichester would facilitate entry into the following careers:

  • Industry
  • Media
  • Teaching
  • Work with children, adults and families
  • IT
  • Computing
  • Marketing
  • Civil Service
