Our Psychology degrees examine how humans function biologically, socially and mentally, linking theoretical concepts to real-world situations and exploring the differences that make each of us unique.
Our degrees in Psychology, Educational Psychology, and Sport and Exercise Psychology are accredited by the British Psychological Society. You can also gain the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society on our Psychology and Criminology degree where the balance of modules will focus on Psychology.
Non-accredited degrees are available if you would prefer to study Criminology and Psychology in equal depth or wish to combine the disciplines of forensic psychology and applied criminology and specialise in Psychosocial Analysis of Offending Behaviour.
The Department of Psychology is based in a modern building equipped with high quality teaching and learning facilities and sophisticated research technologies.
The learning resources include state-of-the-art eye trackers, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) methods, and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for examining cognitive functioning and brain activity.
Other specialist laboratories for Psychology students include a group testing laboratory, observation rooms, soundproof cubicles, audio-visual suites and dedicated IT facilities equipped with subject specific software to support experimental work.
