BA (Hons) Psychology

BA (Hons) Psychology

Psychology at BGU will help you answer any questions about life and who we are, such as: ‘Why do we behave the way we do?’, ‘How do gangs, teams and friendship groups form?’, and ‘Will smiling make me feel more positive?’. As well as classic psychological theories and research, you’ll be debating social issues, studying mental processes, and exploring current issues and topics.

Whether you choose to study Psychology as a Single Honours Degree or as part of a Joint Honours, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the scientific nature of the subject and of it’s wider cultural and social impact. You will develop your understanding of psychology and its theories of the mind, emotions and behaviour and become familiar with how these theories are applied in our lives, communities and societies.

Here at BGU, we ensure you have close support and contact with your tutors and, with small group sizes, you’ll always get the support and feedback you need. We also know how important it is to experience a real working environment so, through work placements and other projects, you’ll be equipped for whichever career path you may choose after your degree.

Our BA Degrees in Psychology are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as conferring eligibility for Graduate Membership of the Society with the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership, provided the minimum standard of qualification of Second-Class Honours is achieved and the empirical psychology project is passed. This is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist and/or Practising Psychologist.
