Program description

Psychology with Education Studies BSc (Hons)

A well-respected and widely sought-after degree, studying Psychology equips you with skills in critical thinking and communication as well as scientific research methods, data analysis and data presentation skills. This broad range of transferable skills makes Psychology graduates an attractive prospect for graduate employers. A psychology degree can open up diverse career options in areas such as research, healthcare, social work, marketing, the police services, teaching and human resources. On completion of the course you will also be eligible for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS); your first step to becoming a chartered psychologist. During this course you will combine the study of psychology with study of the practice and history of education and contemporary issues within education.
