Psychology at Derby

As the scientific study of human thought and behaviour, psychology is a fascinating subject and opens up diverse career avenues. With professional recognition from the British Psychological Society, our course is intellectually challenging, giving you a platform to explore the latest debates about the social, developmental, cognitive and biological dimensions of behaviour.

You’ll join a strong community of staff and students who are passionate about psychology, gaining the theoretical knowledge and applied research skills that employers across many different sectors are seeking.

This is a research-led degree, which means you'll be taught by expert staff who are conducting influential studies into the specific areas of psychology you study - examples of their current research topics include mental health and wellbeing, compassion and mindfulness, autism, maths anxiety, nature connectedness, paranormal beliefs, and the psychological aspects of pain, anxiety and addiction. You'll also benefit from guest lectures by world-class researchers. As part of the course, you’ll conduct your own research and have the opportunity to contribute to the cutting-edge psychological research projects underway at the University. You'll also have access to specialist software to learn how to design, conduct, analyse and report both qualitative and quantitative research in psychology.

As part of your studies, you’ll look at the applications of psychology in a wide range of areas – from understanding the nature and causes of mental illness to investigating decision making in real life situations.
