Psychological and behavioural science examines the different ways that people think and behave, both as individuals and in societal context. Students will learn about core psychological and behavioural science approaches, including cognitive, neuroscientific, social, developmental and individual differences. Students will apply these approaches to a range of real-world contexts, including politics, communication, health and development. The programme also provides scientific training in research methods, including statistical analysis, quantitative methods and qualitative approaches such as interviews and focus groups.
This programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society for students starting in 2020. We are awaiting confirmation from the British Psychological Society for the 2021/22 academic year.
