History and Psychology
What is Joint Honours?
A Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to study two subjects as one degree. This type of degree will broaden your skill set and enhance your career prospects. You can combine any two subjects as long as they’re in different zones, find out what you can combine this subject with.
This course is not just intellectually challenging and politically relevant, it's also entertaining, inspiring and moving. We want you to have more skills and abilities than those traditionally associated with history graduates. So as well as developing your academic skills, you'll learn how to apply your historical knowledge to different roles.
As part of this course, you'll have the chance to do fieldwork at a range of locations from rural country houses to industrial Manchester. You'll visit a variety of museums, art galleries, heritage sites and towns, so you can explore the practical and intellectual applications of history.
You can choose to study psychology as a major, joint or minor subject as part of your joint honours degree. Your decision will determine how many psychology modules you'll study.
During the course you'll gain a detailed understanding of the different areas of psychology including developmental, social, biological, cognitive and health psychology. You can look at the applications of psychology to a wide range of areas, from understanding the nature and causes of mental health problems to investigating decision-making in real-life situations.
