Department of Psychology gives the opportunity to students to familiarise with basic theoretical and practical principles and train in psychology practices. Psychology, defined as the study of behavior and mind, covers all aspects of the human experience. It is a scientific field, an applied science that seeks to understand individuals and groups through general principles and research areas with shared characteristics like observation, interpretation as well as modification of human behavior.
This degree, offered in collaboration with the University of Sunderland, is designed to help students approach the exploration of human behavior and experience, from the very first year of the programme, as well as explore the various ways through which they can be studied. During their studies, students will comprehend the importance of mental functions in individual or social behavior and the physiological and biological processes that support cognitive operations and behaviors. At the same time, they will acquire detailed knowledge on important subjects and methods of research in current psychology as well as its applications in modern life problems related to work, education, physical and mental health and crime.
