Psychologists are interested in the way biological and social factors influence how we behave, and how interests and abilities differ from person to person. They also study how we perceive, think, and learn about the world around us. Join the Psychology and Business programme from The University of Edinburgh to learn more.


Psychology is an experimental and observational science, in which evidence from research studies is used to develop and evaluate theories. The Psychology and Business programme from The University of Edinburgh has a strong emphasis on developing skills in research methods and statistical analysis, to support our research-led teaching.


Business courses focus on the theories and methods behind successful management and explore the relationships between people, organisations and their environment.

  • strategic planning,

  • employment relations
