We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The rapidly expanding Department of Psychology has a distinctive research profile and a cutting edge approach to theory, methodology and application. We came into formal existence in 1997 when the University was re-organised into faculties (prior to that we had a flourishing undergraduate and postgraduate programme within the School of Social Sciences). Psychology is currently part of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Our Master in Research is part of a faculty-wide programme, with core units and departmental specialisms and we currently have 30 students undertaking postgraduate research (MPhil/PhD).
All academic staff in the Department are actively engaged in research and publication. We have a strong tradition of interdisciplinary work and collaborate with other departments in the University of Bath, local and national institutions, and international networks. Seventeen academic staff are augmented by staff in our research units and centres, and by several Visiting Fellows.
In the recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008), over half our staff were affiliated with research areas ranked in the top five across the country, namely Management, Pharmacy and Social Policy. Other staff were linked to Biology, Computer Science and Education, all of which performed well.
