Course Details

This programme will appeal to anyone with an interest in psychology. Our Head of Psychology, Dr. Derek Dorris has designed a Level 7 course which teaches a contemporary theoretical and applied approach to Psychology. In addition to these broader goals, our most important concern when providing third level education in psychology is with offering a cutting edge programme that captures and imparts a modern understanding of psychology.

Our programme provides students with an education in psychology that strikes a healthy balance between theoretical and applied issues. One that gives the students a realistic notion of how the mind works in the real world, and more generally one that is defined by our commitment to excellence.

This course aims to familiarise students with the scientific basis to Psychology. To introduce key concepts in biological, cognitive, social, developmental, personality, and abnormal psychology. To give them an understanding of how the brain and mind work as a unitary system. To familiarise students with what types of aptitudes are best suited to studying Psychology, and what type of technological competencies are required. To instruct students on the role and importance of research in psychology. To familiarise students with the various research methodologies and statistical approaches employed by psychologists and to give instruction on basic statistical procedures. To make students aware of the various psychological professions, their nature, and what type of qualifications and work/life experience they require. It is intended that this course will provide a strong basis for degree level studies in Psychology or Psychology related subjects.
