Understanding Our Place In The World
It’s an exciting time to be studying human behaviour! Across the globe, people are confronted daily with new technologies, unfamiliar cultures, and ongoing challenges that affect all facets of how we live. Studying psychology at Essex allows you to embark on a journey into the thoughts, feelings, and actions of those individuals.
Whether you join as an undergraduate or a postgraduate student, your journey will be guided by the University’s founding set of principles of breaking new ground, of challenging existing expectations and conventions, and – ultimately – of making a meaningful difference in the world. All while developing friendships and professional networks to set you up for life!
To achieve these goals, we organise our research and our teaching across three distinct areas of concentration: thinking about the world, interacting with the world, and experiencing the world. Using state-of-the-art facilities, and learning alongside world-renown experts in the field, you can pursue your intellectual passion at Essex, as we work together to help you ‘TIE’ it all together.
Our department is proud of the multicultural mosaic that makes up our community. Our staff and students come from over 40 countries around the world, bringing their own unique perspectives and experiences which enrich our teaching, learning, and research. Understanding Our Place In The World starts with us, and whether we're from near or far, We Are Essex.
