University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

The course seeks to understand mind and behaviour through experimentation, observation and measurement. This includes the study of perception, attention, memory and emotion in adults and children; the socio'psychological processes that shape our relationships with each other and society; the development of language, behaviour, personality and thought in children; the biological processes that underpin behaviour; and the causes and treatment of abnormal behaviour. Students are introduced to the core areas of psychology, as well as receiving a strong grounding in psychological research methods. This component focuses on learning about how psychological research is conducted, analysed and reported through a series of guided'learning exercises, culminating in an independent research project in the final year. The degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society and confers eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). GBC is necessary if a student is interested in becoming a chartered psychologist. To be eligible for GBD. students must achieve at least a lower second class honours degree and must also pass the independent research project.
