Psychology is the scientific study of mental life and human behaviour. It explains how we think, feel and act, both individually and as part of a social group.

The study of psychology is based on scientific principles and involves a range of research methods. This includes experiments, brain imaging, interviews, case studies and observations.

You’ll develop analytical skills such as statistical techniques and in-depth qualitative methods to explain or predict behaviour.

We offer distinctive topics that are not always found in undergraduate psychology degrees. These include social action and change, and neuroeconomics.

The innovative research of our academic staff informs our teaching. This provides you with exposure to an active research environment.
