Geology

We offer a wide range of modules to give you the flexibility to follow your own areas of interest in the second and third stages. You can design your own distinctive routes: for instance, you can follow an applied or environmental theme.

Fieldwork is important in Geology involving both local and residential studies, including travel overseas - and if you're following either major or joint pathway, you'll be able to take part in any of these. We offer Geology as either a major, joint or minor subject.

Psychology

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.
