Research degrees


The Department of Psychology is characterised by achievement in both theoretical and applied research, which benefits both the discipline and wider society. We value and promote the inter-relationship of research, enterprise, knowledge transfer and teaching activity. Research in the Department spans the full range of the discipline and falls into 6 main areas:

  • Business Psychology
  • Cognitive Neuroscience
  • Health Psychology
  • Psychobiology/Psychophysiology
  • Psychology in Higher Education
  • Social Psychology

In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, more than 70 per cent of our research outputs were rated as internationally excellent and we were commended for our particular strength in the area of Psychobiology.
