Psychology/Sociology - Manchester Metropolitan University

Psychology is the study of human behaviour, development and experience. It is concerned with individual psychological processes and the social context of how we think, act, and interact with the world around us. Psychologists use scientific methods, such as observation, testing, and statistical analysis to explore all aspects of our behaviour to understand how and why we react in the ways that we do. The Psychology department at Manchester Metropolitan University provides one of the most diverse teaching curricula in the UK investigating and examining Psychological development throughout the human lifespan. We have built a reputation for delivering challenging and rewarding programmes covering the full spectrum of disciplines and research areas from cognitive to critical, health to community, and quantitative to qualitative. With internationally renowned researchers, counsellors, forensic and community Psychologists making up our academic staff, you will experience a high quality learning experience provided by a range of experts who draw on their own experiences, research activities and interests to inform their teaching.

Students address a range of sociological questions, using theory and research methods.
