Abnormal and Clinical Psychology Anglia Ruskin University

Ever wondered what makes people think, feel and behave the way they do? Interested in learning about psychological disorders and their treatment? We’re the only university in the UK offering this British Psychological Society accredited degree. It’s ideal if you want to specialise in this area and set yourself apart from other psychology graduates.

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 unique degree 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. This is the first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist and offers you a head start on an exciting and rewarding career journey.
