Understand the important issues such as the extent to which people are the product of their genes or upbringing, how the brain stores memories and thoughts, why people obey authority, and the best ways to promote and improve health.

By studying Psychology you will explore the range of biological, social, and environmental influences on our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, using the latest scientific research approaches and theory.

You will have access to excellent facilities, including observation laboratories, motion capture systems and brain activity monitors and your learning will be explored through live, real life scenarios using a practical approach.
