|Degree:||Bachelor of Arts (BA)|
Psychology is the study of behaviour and mental processes, and includes individual and social, human and animal, normal and abnormal aspects.
First year Psychology is taken with two other subjects selected from the extensive Arts menu. Second year and third year (the final year) of the BA in Psychology involve only courses in Psychology. The BA in Psychology satisfies the requirements for graduate membership of relevant professional societies (the Psychological Society of Ireland and the British Psychological Society), and the degree qualifies graduates for entry to specialist postgraduate professional programmes in Ireland, the UK, the US and elsewhere.
