Description

Can there be a more fascinating subject of study than the human mind and human behaviour? Certainly, there is no more complex a subject known to science, and no field of study that offers more in the way of challenges and potential rewards. Just imagine if we knew enough about the way humans work to be able to prevent the occurrence of problems such as mental illness, anxiety or drug addiction. Imagine also if we could use our understanding to ensure that children, the parents of tomorrow, were brought up in conditions which would fully develop their potential for intellectual, emotional and artistic achievement, or that we could improve our understanding of brain injuries or developmental disorders using the latest advances in imaging techniques such as MRI scanners. The study of psychology is vital if progress is to be made on any of these fronts.

To take into account

Describe the purpose of neuropsychological assessment, and review potential pitfalls in interpreting assessment data. Demonstrate a working knowledge of functional neuroanatomy relevant to neuropsychological disorders. Demonstrate the ability to integrate information from the neurological history and examination to generate hypotheses guiding neuropsychological assessment. Demonstrate an understanding of the pathophysiology of common neurological diseases (including stroke and traumatic brain injury) causing neuropsychological disability, and the ability to integrate this knowledge for generating hypotheses guiding neuropsychological assessment.

As a graduate with a good degree in psychology from Bangor, a variety of careers will be open to you. There are careers for which a psychology degree is essential, and careers for which psychology provides a useful base. In addition, there are careers open to graduates and postgraduates from any discipline. These include, for example, careers in management training, accountancy, teaching, nursing, social work, the police and the armed forces. However, employers are usually looking for general or transferable skills, and a psychology degree arguably provides a unique combination of these.
