- Psychology is the scientific study of human mental life and behaviour. It involves areas such as Brain and Behaviour, Social Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Psychological Research Methods.
- Our Psychology degrees are accredited by the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) and involve studying the human mind and behaviours in the context of scientific testing. Students learn to use research methods including observation, measurement, hypothesis testing, experimentation, logical inference and statistical analysis, and they do so in an encouraging and supportive environment. Our students gain a comprehensive understanding of psychology as a discipline, receiving a wide introduction before moving on to a steadily increasing depth of core concepts and theories.
- You also have the opportunity to study abroad. BSc Psychology through Science students are able to spend one semester on work placement (subject to availability) and one semester on a research internship. Practical research assignments will build your skills in team working, laboratory techniques and the use of statistical and research methodologies, which are highly valued in many areas of employment.
