Months of entry
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.
On this largely theoretical course, you will explore the relationship between psychology and cultural studies, philosophy, theology and social science. You will develop your understanding of different research methods, and explore the use of language and the construction of meaning in real-world situations and ethnographic approaches.
Whether you are working as a counsellor, a social worker, a psychologist or in another related profession, you will gain a unique perspective on mind, self and society. Alternatively, you may simply want to explore this fascinating subject and its insights into what makes us human.
Research Excellence Framework 2014 - 40% of our research in the Psychology unit was judged to be world leading or internationally excellent.
