About the course
BSc Psychology course accredited by The British Psychological Society
Psychology courses at Brunel emphasise the everyday and real-life significance of psychology by encouraging you to explore the relationship between the practical and theoretical aspects of the subject, both through academic study and work placements.
Psychology is often defined as the study of behaviour and of the mind. Through their theories and research, psychologists investigate a diverse range of topics including:
- The relationship between the brain, behaviour and subjective experience;
- Human development;
- The influence of other people on the individual’s thoughts, feelings and behaviour;
- Psychological disorders and their treatment;
- The impact of culture on the individual’s behaviour and subjective experience;
- Differences between people in terms of their personality and intelligence;
- People’s ability to acquire, organise, remember and use knowledge to guide their behaviour.
Achieving a minimum second class honours from the BSc Psychology programme allows you to apply for Graduate Membership of The British Psychological Society, which entitles you to use the professional title MBPsS.
This degree ensures that you gain an understanding of the breadth and diversity of the discipline. At the same time, as you progress through the course and discover the areas which interest you the most, it becomes increasingly possible to specialise, through both our work placement system and your selection of modules.
