¿Qué aprenderé?

The PhD is a globally recognised postgraduate research degree and the highest level of degree you can achieve. PhD students are critical, curious, creative thinkers who undertake original research over at least 3 years.

This course is also offered at overseas locations.

Psychology

Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour. Psychology is a fascinating and wide-ranging subject that varies from a scientific to more personal approach. Psychologists create theories based on data, analysing simple behaviour – from that observed in animals to the more complex verbal emotional responses of people. Psychology can be strongly theoretical or highly practical.

Research in the School of Psychology is focused in areas such as social psychology, cognitive neuroscience, child development, learning, and psychological and developmental disabilities. Laboratory or field work is an important part of psychology, and you will develop practical skills in these areas.

You’ll love studying Psychology if you want more understanding of how people (and sometimes animals) think, feel and behave. This subject also available in faculty of arts.
