Cognitive Psychology with a Year Abroad

On this British Psychological Society-accredited course you will gain a strong grounding in key theories and research methods of cognitive psychology. You will also have the chance to study Psychology and Risk; Psychology of Language, Mind, Brain and Personality; Brain and Behaviour; and Social and Affective Neuroscience. Advanced option topics will cover areas such as neuroscience, biological psychology, linguistics, and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI) and EEG research techniques. In your final year, you will design and implement an individual research project which is related to cognitive psychology. Past students have researched areas such as autism, face perception, visual perception and attention, and brain activity in relation to social and non-social stimuli. This course is ideal if you are interested in a career in data science, mental and physical rehabilitation, neuroscience, clinical psychology or computer science. It will also provide you with a firm base for further postgraduate study in cognitive psychology, if you choose that path. Enhance your studies by spending a year abroad. All of our psychology degrees have a variant that includes spending your third year abroad before returning to UEA for your final year. While you’re away you will be encouraged to take modules that relate to your personal interests and career goals. These might be in psychology or in other disciplines. A year abroad is a unique, fulfilling experience that will help you develop skills coveted by employers. You can choose from a host of partner universities in Europe, North America and Australasia, including the University of California; University of Notre Dame; University of Hawaii at Manoa; Temple University and Vrije University Amsterdam.
