This programme has been developed to provide a broad scientific education in Psychology, a study which seeks to understand mind and behaviour through experimentation, observation and measurement. This includes: the study of perception, memory and emotion in adults and children; the socio-psychological processes that shape our relationships with each other and society; the development of language, behaviour, personality and thought in children; the biological processes that underpin behaviour; and the causes and treatment of abnormal behaviour.
Within the programme, students are introduced to the core areas of psychology and receive a strong grounding in psychological research methods. This component focuses on learning about how psychological research is conducted, interpreted and reported through a series of guided learning exercises, culminating in an independent research project in the final year.
