Flexible course structure
Our BA/BSc Psychology is modular and we offer you increasing choice of optional modules as you progress through each year. This enables you to build
a programme of study that matches your interests.
You can also choose to spend a year
studying abroad and all Essex students have the opportunity to learn a language alongside their course through our
award-winning Languages for All programme.
We emphasise the teaching of research skills. You will learn how to design effective studies of your own, and to appraise and critically evaluate those of others. During
your final year you will conduct your own research project and by the time you graduate you will have a deep understanding of how psychology is used in the world.
Getting you ready for life after graduation
Once you complete your course, your knowledge and practical skills will have prepared you for a career within psychology and beyond.
We place an emphasis on learning key skills that will be valuable even if you decide to move away from the sciences. By studying with us
you will also be prepared for postgraduate study in the future.
