The aim of the programme is to give you a thorough grounding in the psychology and behaviour of both human and non-human animals. This is an applied programme and you will be investigating how a better understanding of animal behaviour can contribute to the health and wellbeing of humans and vice versa. For example, the module dealing with Animal Therapy looks at how psychologist might be involved in the treatment of animals with psychological or behavioural problems. This module will also look at how animals are used in animal assisted therapy for the treatment of human psychological and physical health problems.
The BSc (hons) Psychology of Human and Animal Behaviour will provide you with a thorough grounding in psychology as applied to human and animal behavior.
You will study for three years; in years one and two you will take six 20 credit modules and in your final year you will complete a disseration (40 credits) and choose four additional modules.
Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
