Our CertCE Psychology course is 100% online and part-time and gives students a scientific understanding of the mind, brain, behaviour and experience.
Enabling students to develop both subject-specific knowledge and transferable skills, it can be achieved as a stand-alone qualification or used towards our full BSc (Hons) Psychology degree.
This course has been developed by Chartered Psychologists and has been designed to create a thought-provoking and interesting introduction to this fascinating subject. Students will be presented with different perspectives (promoting an appreciation of the real-life applications of psychology). The course also has a strong focus on the role of empirical evidence in the development and critique of psychological theory, and how this affects the future of research in the discipline.
After completing this CertCE course, students will have an appreciation of the scientific and theoretical underpinnings of psychology - this will include its historical origins, progression and limitations. The course also raises awareness of the variability and diversity of psychological functioning and its significance. Students will also be able to recognise a range of influences on psychological functioning and how these are conceptualised across three core discipline areas (social psychology, cognitive psychology, and personality and intelligence).
We believe that education should be accessible for everyone, so you do not need any previous academic qualifications to start our CertCE Psychology course.
