We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Psychobiology equip postgraduates with the skills to use biological principles to explain psychological processes. For example, courses might examine correlations between mood and brain function.
Related subjects include Clinical Neuropsychiatry and Health Psychology. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Psychology, Biology or Medicine.
Biological Psychology offers insight into the genetic and developmental mechanisms of human behaviour. It has close affiliations with subjects such as Anthropology, Evolutionary Theory and Philosophy, and as such, courses in this field are usually highly interdisciplinary in nature.
Programmes tend to view human experience as a combination of biological events and psychological factors. For example, you might examine how cognition and mood are related to biological processes such as stress, or the effect that substances have on the mind.
Similarly, you might undertake research to determine whether prolonged drug abuse can produce neurological disorders, or whether it simply aggravates underlying conditions.
Careers in Psychobiology vary greatly, and you could apply your expertise in fields such as medicine and therapy, or in industrial settings like the design of artificial intelligence and health technology.
