Why Study Psychology at UL?

Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behaviour. Over the past century, Psychologists have examined the fascinating variety of human thought and activity and now a degree in Psychology opens up many opportunities to use this knowledge to address important social issues and improve the quality of people’s lives.

Psychology spans virtually all aspects of human life and allows us seek answers to questions such as:

  • What effects do different drugs have on behaviour?
  • How do children develop a sense of self and relationships with others?
  • What effect does our mood have on our ability to remember information?
  • How can we understand mental disorders and help people cope with their illnesses?
  • When and why do people and animals help others in need?
  • What are the roots of prejudice and discrimination and what can be done to resolve intergroup conflict?

By defining and investigating these and other questions, psychologists aim to provide practical solutions to the many personal and social challenges that people face in their everyday lives. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge and skills essential for a career in Psychology. This is an accredited course so you will be eligible to register with the Psychological Society of Ireland when you graduate.

Course Structure

This four year honours degree in Psychology provides a broad introduction to the discipline, followed by coverage of the core areas of study required for accreditation, as well as allowing you to specialise in advanced areas in your final year of study.

You will also have an opportunity to undertake study abroad as well as work in an area relevant to psychology during your degree.
