Our 33 members of academic staff consistently produce and publish high impact research spanning all subdisciplines of psychology. The Department of Psychology provides a world-class research environment for postgraduate students in Biological, Cognitive, Social or Developmental Psychology along with more applied aspects such as Educational Psychology, Forensic/Criminological Psychology, Neuroscience (including Neurorehabilitation) and Health Psychology. Much of our research is interdisciplinary both within the department and outside of the department.
The research activities in the Department fall within four research groupings:
- Perception, Action & Awareness
- Developmental Science
- Social, Evolutionary & Affective Psychology
- Learning, Memory & Cognition
The Research masters degrees, MSc, MA, MPhil, normally take one year (two years part-time) and are assessed by dissertation. Successful students may apply for entry to a PhD programme. The PhD is assessed by thesis.
