At Lincoln students have the opportunity to gain an insight into the ways in which learning is shaped and delivered. The course explores how psychological theory can be related to a variety of educational environments, as well as considering a range of psychological issues.

Learning and teaching are explored through four areas: philosophy, sociology, history, and psychology – with a strong focus on how psychology can support a broad understanding of education. Education systems in compulsory schools and other learning environments can also be examined throughout the degree.

The BSc (Hons) Education and Psychology at University of Lincoln  considers the different ways in which education is implemented and understood throughout the UK, and globally. The course aims to support students to understand and question current and historical education systems, and to consider how these systems align with policy, practice and social expectations. The psychology aspects of the programme aim to support students to understand how brain processes can support function, and approaches to measuring abilities such as intelligence. Students can also explore contemporary theories in relation to personality development, and social psychology.

Research based learning is an important part of this course and students will be encouraged to use enquiry and investigative approaches to learn more about education and psychology throughout their three-year study.


This course draws key aspects of education and psychology together in one undergraduate programme. The programme aims to incorporate research-based opportunities and as a result, students can gain the knowledge and skills required for studying aspects of education or psychology of specific interest. The course has been designed to provide a strong base for postgraduate study and beyond.

The four pillars of knowledge; psychology, history, sociology, and philosophy, can support a broad understanding of education and psychology, and this in conjunction with the study of local and global issues as well as contemporary psychological theories, aims to enable students to gain depth and breadth in their knowledge.

Study may also include self-funded trips abroad to experience education in other countries. There are currently plans for study abroad visits to Finland and Ireland to observe other global education systems, although these have not been finalised. Students will be responsible for their own travel, accommodation and living expenses when undertaking such trips.
