Fascinated by psychological disorders and their treatment? Our Cambridge-based degree, accredited by the British Psychological Society, is designed to introduce you to clinical and health psychology and develop your analytical skills using our specialist labs and facilities. You’ll engage with academics carrying out world-leading research, while an optional placement year and advanced modules in clinical and developmental psychology will give you a head start if you choose to study further to become a professional clinical, health or forensic psychologist. Our degree will help you understand people and their unusual behaviours, emotions and thoughts. You’ll consider the possible links between psychological disorders and mental, emotional and physical disorders and explore how psychology is applied to the understanding of health, illness and healthcare. Developing your scientific, analytical and research skills, you’ll learn about treatments in areas such as clinical psychology and cognitive neuropsychology. You’ll use our excellent research facilities, including well-equipped specialist laboratories for measuring electrical activity in the brain, eye movement, psychoneuroimmunology, emotions and communication, psychometrics, human behaviour, consumer reactions and much more. To make sure you’re kept ahead of the latest findings, you’ll be invited to weekly research seminars with talks from leading academics and researchers. Our course is accredited by the British Psychological Society. Providing you graduate with at least a second-class honours degree, you’ll be eligible for graduate chartered membership of the Society.
