    Course Summary

    Psychology is the study of the human mind, the way it is grounded in the living systems of the body, and the way people respond to their ever changing environment. A BSc in Psychology is typically the first step to a career as a Chartered Psychologist, though of course you’ll have many other career options with a degree from the University of Sunderland.

    One of the things you’ll learn over the course of this degree program is a critical understanding of the ‘big issues’ facing psychology today. You’ll see how psychology can help people to live better lives, as well as how it can guide business and industry to better address human needs.

    As you progress through the course, you’ll be able to select from a wide range of optional modules in order to build your own unique specialty and area of practice. This could be anything from neuropsychology to addiction therapy.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
