Psychology with Clinical and Health Psychology | Bachelor's degree | Humanities & Culture | On Campus | 3 years | Bangor University | United Kingdom

This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and provides eligible graduates with Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). On this course, as well as studying general psychology modules, you will specialise in understanding the psychological factors involved in mental and physical health. In clinical psychology, you will study behavioural problems in children, mental illness in adults, and psychological problems in old age. This will include important contemporary issues such as eating disorders and drug misuse. You will analyse, not only what causes these problems but also how they can be treated, or, even better, prevented. In health psychology, you will examine the psychological factors that lead some individuals to behave in health-damaging ways, such as eating unhealthy diets, not taking enough exercise, or engaging in unsafe sexual behaviour. You will study what happens when individuals do become ill or disabled, with diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. As well as understanding how things can go wrong, you will analyse how the situation can be improved through psychological interventions. The first year of the course is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of psychology. It is designed to provide a thorough grounding in the subject for those with no Psychology background while allowing those who have already studied Psychology to increase the breadth and depth of their understanding. The second year continues on the same basis enabling graduates to cover all the core topics be eligible for the BPS Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership. In Year three, you complete a major research and an in-depth study of at least four topics selected from the full range of modules that are currently available, at least two of which are specialist clinical/health psychology modules.
