Course description

Course code: WD163 What is the BA (Hons) in Psychology with Arts? This new interdisciplinary three year degree programme in Psychology with Arts offers students the opportunity to follow a major course in Psychology alongside minor study in an associate humanities discipline. Psychology is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivation underlying such behaviour. Thus this programme relates the study of human beings to the social, economic, political and cultural contexts, interrelating with them. Psychology is enriched by these contexts in learning from them and it, in turn, enriches studies of these contexts in their respective critical and imaginative understandings of human beings and their environments. This degree aims to integrate the discipline, Psychology, the study of people, how they think, act, react and interact in an interdisciplinary way with an associate Humanities subject: either Sociology, or Religious Studies, or a Language (French, German, Italian, Spanish). Career Opportunities A graduate of the BA (Hons) in Psychology will be an enthusiastic and confident practitioner, comfortable with their ability to learn, and able to adapt to an ever-changing society. They will be ready to embark on a challenging and rewarding career in a variety of differing employment positions. Follow on Study Masters degrees by Research in the School of Humanities as well as various other taught Masters programmes. Students who undertake the BA (Hons) in Psychology will have to be capable of studying across a wide range of disciplines, including Statistics.
