Katie Whalley, Social Science BSc – BPS Route

Katie Whalley

When looking at degree choices I had not originally planned on a degree in Social Science, but now I am very glad that it is what I ended up doing. The path I followed (the British Psychological Society accredited course) was engaging and allowed for specialisation in the areas of the social sciences that I found most interesting. The lecturers are passionate about their subject areas, and their research-generated enthusiasm carries through in lectures and seminars. 

I loved my three years at Cardiff University and I will take many of the skills I have learned from my time at SOCSI with me into future study and my career. I am now about to start a post-compulsory PGCE and look forward to developing my knowledge gained in my time in university in the position of a psychology teacher.
