Due to accreditation requirements, it is not possible to offer a combined honours degree in Psychology and another discipline.
At best, a student may engage a co-supervisor from another discipline, however the thesis must be clearly psychological in nature (and the internal supervisor from Psychology must of course agree to co-supervision with someone external to the School).
