Studying Psychology involves exploring why humans feel, think and act in the ways that they do. At Keele you will find out what the latest research tells us about human behaviour and learn how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in our well-equipped labs using a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques.
The course is taught by staff who are actively engaged in research in social and developmental psychology, cognition and neuropsychology, health and wellbeing and in a range of applied areas. The emphasis of the course is on understanding how psychology impacts on everyday life; from developing a sense of self and negotiating personal relationships to influencing judgments about matters of global significance, such as climate change. The aim at Keele is to produce psychology graduates who are psychologically literate citizens.
We accept a number of EU and International qualifications for entry to our degree programmes.
