Student Profile(s)

Elliot Brown

160.gif Goldsmiths is not often considered to be most well known for its Psychology Department, however there is a very solid collection of academic and research staff, with many specialist subjects catered for that are not found elsewhere in London. The diversity of creative subjects that Goldsmiths has to offer ultimately reflects on to the Psychology Department, with a number of ‘alternative’ research areas being explored (for example, the MSc in Music, Mind and Brain, and the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit). This allows students much more freedom to explore their ideas in a variety of contexts.
