What will I learn?

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind, brain, and behaviour. It focuses on building and testing theories to help explain how people interact with each other and the world around them. Psychologists study: - how we perceive, think and learn about the world around us- the way biological and social factors influence how we behave - how interests and abilities differ from person to person - how we communicate verbally and non-verbally - how and why our mental abilities change across our lives Psychology is an experimental and observational science. It uses evidence from research studies to develop and evaluate theories. Our programme has a strong emphasis on developing skills in research methods and statistical analysis using R programming. This supports our research-led teaching.
