In the Department of Psychology, you are a part of a truly diverse academic community, where different levels of experience and expertise are brought together by shared passions and interests.
Some of our courses are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), giving you professional status.
The variety of our Masters level courses allow you the flexibility to determine your own academic and career path, whether that’s as a child psychologist, clinical psychologist, or forensic psychologist, for example, or something that lies entirely outside of the discipline.
