BSc in Psychology

York St John University

Studying Psychology provides students with a comprehensive education in the scientific foundations of psychology and an introduction to applied practice across multiple domains. This programme is accredited by the BPS as an approved undergraduate sequence of study in psychology in the United Kingdom.

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) Psychology* provides a scientific approach to understanding behavior and thinking. In Year 1, students develop a broad understanding of basic psychological processes, which is expanded upon in greater depth and breadth in year 2. The final year of the programme allows students to focus on their individual areas of interest in psychology through elective modules and self-generated research; final year classes are limited in size to provide a more iindividualizedlearning experience. Throughout the degree, students participate in laboratory work and work to the British Psychological Society Code of Ethics. To develop the scientific competence which underpins the discipline and profession, students receive training in data analytic techniques and the research methods used by psychologists. The programme equips graduates with the basic scientific grounding and theoretical understanding required for advanced level studies.

*The programme is subject to revalidation in 2018
