Learning & Teaching
A variety of learning and teaching methods are used, and this will include lecture series supported by seminars, workshops and tutorials. Learning and teaching is tailored to the needs of students in different modules, so each module will be different developing skills and knowledge appropriate to the subject area. All modules are supported by Blackboard, which helps students to access information when it is needed. Notes, reading and discussion boards are used to support student learning.
A personal tutor scheme supports students with academic and pastoral support from the first year onwards, and using our Initial Professional Development we work to encourage students to set and achieve their academic and career goals through all three years of the programme.
Assessment may be through coursework (e.g. essays, reports and seminar presentations) or formal examinations (which take place in May/June each year) and by coursework.
Employability & Careers
Career opportunities exist for graduates where knowledge of people and how they communicate is valued. The course is an ideal foundation for further study in postgraduate psychology courses leading to a qualification as an occupational, educational, clinical, and forensic or health psychologist, also leading to other postgraduate courses such as PGCE. Graduates will also be able to enter careers in personnel management, advertising, health promotion and many areas of industry.
