The Psychology Degree in Its Place
Reddy, Peter; Rochelle, Kim
Psychology Teaching Review, v14 n2 p46-50 2008
In response to the issues raised by Radford a clearer understanding of the psychology degree as part of the liberal education tradition is advocated in line with Newman (1982) and Graham (2005). Such a focus incorporates developments in employability and graduate competencies and reinforces rather than undermines concern with scholarship. Links between academic subject material and personal development and a debate on the role of the British Psychological Society in regulating the Bachelors' degree are advocated.
