The Higher Diploma in Arts in Psychology at DBS is for graduates who wish to pursue a professional career or postgraduate study in psychology but who don’t hold an honours degree in psychology.

Higher Diploma in Arts in Psychology at DBS

The course enables students to study key areas of psychology in a thriving research environment and, through a supervised research dissertation, explore practical issues of interest and relevance to a range of theoretical and occupational fields. Students will develop a firm knowledge base in psychology and gain experience of the research process that will build upon the skills and knowledge that they have already acquired in earlier studies. The Higher Diploma represents the necessary first step to becoming a professional psychologist. Upon successful completion of the Higher Diploma, depending upon the final grade, graduates will be eligible to apply to enter postgraduate training courses in their chosen specialisation and ultimately gain employment in their area of expertise.

Students will be encouraged to consider entering their own analysis as a fundamental requirement for engagement with this field.
