Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour, mental health and neuropsychological functioning. It seeks to understand what makes us who we are, how our minds work, and what influences our behaviour and social relationships. 

By joining us at Surrey: 

  • You’ll learn from lecturers who are active researchers in key psychological areas such as behavioural, cognitive, developmental, personality and social psychology.
