Essex is ranked among the top 250 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017). If you’re curious about how our mind works and what drives human behaviour, psychology is your perfect subject. At Essex you acquire skills that go far beyond being useful in related professions. Studying psychology is an investment for life. Our BSc Psychology is fully accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). You cover core areas in psychology, including developmental psychology, intelligence, language, memory, perception, social psychology, health psychology, and research methods and statistics. With a strong emphasis on the teaching of research skills, you learn how to design effective studies of your own, and to appraise and critically evaluate those of others. During your final year you will conduct your own research project developing a deep understanding of how psychology is used in the world.
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.
