How You Study

The BSc (Hons) Business Psychology is a joint programme between the School of Psychology and Lincoln International Business School. It seeks to enable students to enter the career market with specific knowledge, skills, and attitudes to make successful work-based decisions and interventions.

All modules are carefully designed to enable students to take charge of their own learning and develop their understanding of the behaviour of people in business and how this can be applied in different organisational contexts.

The first year offers an introduction to the psychological theories and frameworks behind human interaction in the workplace. This is developed further in the second and third years, where students can explore some of the main methods and techniques deployed by psychologists. They can develop critical evaluation skills with an emphasis on the application of theory and practice in a range of organisational contexts.

Students are expected to apply these theories in practice, taking a global perspective of business, and may work on team projects with client organisations. They have the opportunity to think and act as leaders, developing their knowledge of management, coaching, people leadership, and marketing.

Contact time can be in workshops, practical sessions, seminars, or lectures, and may vary from module to module and from academic year to year. Tutorial sessions and project supervision can take the form of one-to-one engagement or small group sessions.
