Teaching and Assessment

You can choose to take Psychology as a major, minor or dual subject. A major/minor combination involves taking two thirds of your credits in the major subject, and one third in the minor subject. With a dual combination you take an equal number of credits in both subjects.

Your award classification is determined by the major subject. If you take a dual combination with one subject that is a BA and one which is a BSc, the award of BA or BSc is decided by which subject you choose for your final project or dissertation.

As there are so many combinations, the Key Information Sets (KIS) for this course are held on another page. Please see the Combined Subjects section of the website for more information.
