For the curious and courageous, this online BSc (Hons) Psychology challenges your thinking and explores the way in which our minds function. It is one of the few 100% online programmes accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
On this degree you’ll learn about the scientific and theoretical underpinnings of psychology as well as delving into several specialised areas. You also have optional modules to pick from, so you can tailor your own path and give yourself an insight into an area which you may want to pursue in the future.
Throughout this degree, you’ll have the opportunity to explore a broad range of topics including:
- the major developmental milestones from a variety of theoretical perspectives why people differ from one another
- the principles of psycho and pharmacotherapeutic in the treatment of mental health
- theories and methods in the field of social psychology
- the role of memory as the mediator of cognitive processes
Finally, you’ll be able to build on your research skills acquired during the programme through your final project on a psychology topic that is of personal interest to you.
The course includes content relevant to meet the BPS’s requirements of the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership Curriculum (GBC). This is an important step towards becoming a Chartered Member of the Society. If you hope to continue to study psychology after your degree, it is recommended that you choose an accredited course so that you can leave your options open for your future career.
Graduate membership is an essential starting point for your career as a qualified psychologist and is a prerequisite for many BPS accredited postgraduate and doctoral programmes. Without eligibility for the GBC you will not be able to complete society-accredited postgraduate and professional study.
