BSc Biology with Psychology C1C8
Biology with Psychology is designed for students who wish to gain an insight into the biological phenomena governing human behaviour. Students can tailor the course towards their own biological areas of interest and link these subjects to teachings on aspects of physiology and cognitive psychology. The degree provides students with a balanced mixture of scientific analytical skills and communication and interpersonal skills.
This course is taught jointly by biology staff in the Lancaster Environment Centre and the Faculty of Health & Medicine, and the Department of Psychology, so students benefit from the excellent complementary facilities which these Departments have to offer. All staff in these areas are research active, and many of them are recognised as international leaders in their fields.
For entry from year 13 requirements are typically AAB/ABB at A-level with at least two science subjects from Biol /Chem/Geog/Maths/Physics/Psychology/Env.Science/Computing or equivalent 2A- plus 2AS- levels. Applicants with other types of qualification should enquire for details.
All candidates should have GCSE English language at grade C or above. For details of alternative English qualifications please follow this link. Candidates should also have a minimum of grade B in GCSE Mathematics or the equivalent. We will also consider 'Access' course Mathematics components.
We welcome applications from mature candidates.
After receiving your application we will invite you to an Open Day for informal discussions with members of staff and to visit the department and campus.
