Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Human Biology and Psychology. The Human Biology element of this course is ideal if you’re interested in biology but are looking for a particular focus on the human body and how we’ve adapted to our environment. This course provides a broad understanding of the physiology of the body’s major systems as well as human health and disease. You might explore the impact of nutrition and the environment on health, how humans in turn impact on the environment, and human evolution. Keele’s multidisciplinary approach puts human biology in context, so you’ll have input from experts ranging from clinicians to nutritionists, physiotherapists, geographers and conservation biologists.

Graduates from this programme have opportunities in a wide range of fields, with career paths in science, health, industry or the media. You might become a nutritionist, dietitian, health promotion specialist, clinical molecular geneticist, counsellor, adult nurse, sports therapist, or technical author. Alternatively, you could pursue opportunities in postgraduate research, teacher training, occupational therapy, journalism, nursing or medicine.

The Psychology programme enables you to explore why humans think, feel, communicate and act in the ways that they do. At Keele you will find out what the latest research tells us about human behaviour and learn how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in our well-equipped labs using a range of techniques. The course is taught by staff who are actively engaged in research with
specialisms in social psychology, developmental psychology, cognition
and neuropsychology, biological psychology health and wellbeing and a
range of applied areas. The emphasis of the course is on understanding
how psychology impacts on everyday life; from developing a sense of
self and negotiating personal relationships to influencing judgments
about matters of global significance, such as climate change.

At Keele we aim to produce psychology graduates who are ready to
use their psychology skills and knowledge to make a real difference.
You could take up any number of very interesting careers in psychology,
perhaps working as a neuropsychologist or as a clinical, counselling,
educational, forensic, occupational or sports psychologist. Whatever
path you choose in your working life, the Keele Psychology degree aims
to develop a psychological perspective on human behaviour which is
valued in a huge range of careers.

Many of our graduates choose to pursue exciting careers beyond
psychology, including in education, health, social care, management,
marketing and many more.
