The School of Health and Social Sciences embraces a strong commitment to teaching and learning, demonstrated by both innovative module design and extensive pedagogical research activity. This has helped to create a sense of community where staff and students all contribute to the academic culture.
Undergraduate courses in psychology and sociology offer an insight into human behaviour and the workings of society, while the complementary healthcare programmes investigate holistic methods of improving health and wellbeing. If you are looking for a postgraduate qualification the School offers options in careers guidance, social research and complementary healthcare.
Staff have a broad range of research interests spanning the social sciences, including transport, childhood, health, facial recognition, criminal behaviour, migration and nationalism. Forward looking and energetic, the school is forging a unique identity - it as an exciting place for staff and students alike.
