What is Psychology? 

Psychology is the study of human behaviour and mental life.  Therefore, it is relevant to every aspect of human life and there are psychologists working areas as varied as health, education, business and crime.  

Psychology is often essential to apply science to everyday life.  It is no good developing an effective anti-viral cleaner if you cannot persuade the people working in hospitals to use it effectively.  If you want to prevent people committing crimes you need to understand what motivates them to commit a crime. 

Our BPS accredited programme at Cardiff Met will give you a thorough grounding in all the key areas of psychology: developmental, social, cognitive biological and individual differences as well as the research skills to explore these areas. 

In your final year you will get a marvellous opportunity to apply these skills in one of the widest ranges of options in a BSc programme in the UK.  For those of you who develop an interest in forensic or health psychology you can stay with us an start your career in these areas by following a BPS accredited MSc in either of these subjects.
