Why do we behave and think in certain ways? How do we develop and understand the world? What goes on deep down in our emotions, relationships and society as a whole?
At Essex, you study the role of the unconscious mind in mental health, culture and society. You're taught by internationally-recognised experts from a range of disciplines in depth psychology. Our professors focus on theoretical, methodological and clinical thinking, and our clinicians and practitioners help people with mental health problems. We're educating the next generation of mental health professionals.
Our close relationships with the National Health Service, education, care services and professional institutions ensure what you're taught is always relevant, up-to-date and responds to the needs of society.
