What Will You Study

Lancaster University’s Biology with Psychology degree explores the biological processes which underpin human behaviour. It has been designed for those wishing to develop an understanding of the influences that govern human behaviour, underpinned by knowledge of the biology of the system.

You will gain a core knowledge of biology and psychology and can choose optional modules according to your interests and career aspirations. The core modules on the degree principally focus on understanding the biology that underpins human behaviour and aim to provide the opportunity to understand psychology in greater depth. You will be encouraged to link your study of Biology to a progressive understanding of developmental, physiological and cognitive psychology.

During your degree, you will conduct an independent research project and benefit from the research experience of our internationally renowned academics. You will also receive training in the key techniques associated with modern biosciences. The facilities for studying Biology at Lancaster University are excellent - we have invested over £4 million in new life science teaching laboratories.

The BSc Biology with Psychology is taught jointly by our Biology academics and the Department of Psychology. Lancaster University is ranked fifth in the UK for Biological Sciences by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.
