BSc (Hons) in Psychology (University of Greenwich)

This programme has been developed to provide a broad scientific education in Psychology, a study which seeks to understand mind and behaviour through experimentation, observation and measurement. This includes: the study of perception, 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.
Within the programme, students are introduced to the core areas of psychology and receive a strong grounding in psychological research methods. This component focuses on learning about how psychological research is conducted, interpreted and reported through a series of guided learning exercises, culminating in an independent research project in the final year. Students also complete 50 hours of voluntary work in an area of their choice (for example in a non-governmental organisation in a helping capacity).
