The Psychology Major offers an in-depth examination of the scientific approach to human behaviour and experience.

You will focus on core principles of psychology, covering topics such as sexuality, cultural differences and evolution. You’ll also learn how psychology applies to fields such as marketing, forensics, sport and fashion.

You’ll have opportunities to undertake practical experiments using our specialist facilities. Your research findings will inform your understanding of different scientific theories and methodologies.

Elective modules will help you understand the breadth of this discipline and also give you a broad skillset.

Options to learn a language and study abroad at one of our international partners will help expand your learning and global outlook.
