Program description

BSc (Hons) Psychology and Counselling

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes, and the relation between the two. It explores how we act and interact, both as individuals and in groups, and the thoughts and feelings that motivate our behaviour.

Counselling is concerned with the integration of psychological theory with interventions and therapeutic practice. As a student on this course, you will develop a scientific understanding of psychology as a discipline and practical skills in counselling and therapy.
