Course content

This is the only course in the UK to offer a combination of transpersonal, psychoanalytic and critical approaches to psychology. You will explore ways of understanding the self as an open, evolving project that develops through interaction. This reflects developments at the leading edge of psychology, drawing upon insights from the history of human exploration of the self.

You will explore the relationship between psychology and cultural studies, philosophy, theology and social science. We provide the opportunity to develop your skills in research methods, including exploring the use of language and the construction of meaning in real-world situations, and ethnographic approaches.

You will gain a unique perspective on mind, self and society, whether you are working as a counsellor, a social worker, a psychologist, or in a related profession. We also welcome those who simply wish to explorethis unique subject, and its insights into what makes us human.
