Psychology at Stirling is committed to internationally recognised and excellent scientific research, coupled with innovative and reflective research-led teaching and learning.
We aim to grow basic research in the science of mind and behaviour, linked to applied research with direct impacts for society. This linkage provides us with a unique identity and allows our students at all levels to experience the joint challenges of doing basic research and the rigorous application of this research.
Standing at the interface between the biological and social sciences and the humanities, psychology has common ground with subjects like neuropsychology, zoology, computing, sociology and philosophy.
Our taught postgraduate courses combine generic research methods training with more specialised advanced modules and practical placements in order to meet your personal development goals.
Our research activities fall under three main themes - Health and Behaviour Change, Behaviour and Evolution, and Cognition in Complex Environments.
Psychology at Stirling is renowned for the quality of its research, and many of the staff are known worldwide. Many of the courses involve staff teaching about their own research.
