Psychology


"Psychology is a fascinating subject, which provides an insight into how the brain really works – a truly amazing thing. The environment here is very comfortable and relaxing – studying at Newman is an incredible experience."
Riaz Khan – Psychology student

Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour. It ranges from understanding child development, through to how the brain works, why some people seem to be more outgoing than others, how people interact in groups, and why people are motivated to work.

At Newman there are single and joint honours courses available in Psychology. Single honours includes all the major areas of the discipline: social, development, individual differences, cognitive and physiological. The joint honours degree focuses on social, developmental and individual differences. In addition, you will learn research methods and statistics and all of our undergraduate psychology programmes are accredited by BPS. You can also go on to study Psychology at a postgraduate level here at Newman with our different MSc routes.
