Overview

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and how it shapes and influences our behaviour. On this Psychology (Hons) degree from De Montfort University, we explore human behaviour using sound scientific methodology – observation, measurement, and testing – to understand how and why people function in the way they do.

Gaining a professionally accredited psychology degree is an essential first step to a career as a psychologist or to move on to postgraduate study. Our graduates thrive in careers where an understanding of societal issues is key – in criminal justice, education, social work, research, advertising, human resources and healthcare.

On the course you’ll study core areas including biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, and you’ll cover personality and intelligence, research methods, and historical perspectives. You’ll also complete a work experience placement where you’ll see academic theory applied in practice.

Graduate Careers

Graduates from this course have gone on to work in a variety of roles across a range of well-respected industries including police services, teaching, social work, human resources, healthcare, research, and advertising.
