Psychology is the scientific study of the most complex machine imaginable: the human mind. This BPS-accredited degree takes you on a journey to uncover the reasons behind human actions and interactions, digging deeper into the thoughts and feelings that trigger our behaviour.
How do we learn and remember? What do our actions and interactions tell us about our behaviour? How do we communicate verbally and non-verbally? Satisfy your inquisitive mind and find answers to these questions and more during this fascinating psychology degree.
The discipline of psychology is continually evolving, with many exciting new developments occurring across a number of core areas (Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, and Biological Psychology). The use of neural imaging techniques is one significant advancement, which helps us to understand the links between brain and behaviour.
