Program Description

This innovative degree allows you to develop a scientific understanding of human behaviour and combine it with a knowledge of mental health and counselling skills.

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes, and the relation between the two. Counselling is concerned with the integration of psychological theory with interventions and therapeutic practice. As a student on this course, you will develop a scientific understanding of psychology as a discipline and practical skills in counselling and therapy.
