Psychology has been defined as the science of mental life and its scope includes a wide variety of issues. It addresses such questions as: how do we perceive colours? How do children acquire language? What predisposes two people to get on with each other? What causes schizophrenia?
The Oxford Experimental Psychology Department is widely regarded as one of the leading psychology departments in the UK. The department’s size and its commitment to excellence in teaching and research means there are typically four or five research seminars each week, in addition to undergraduate lectures and classes. At present, there are particularly strong research groups in the fields of human cognitive processes, neuroscience, language, developmental psychology, social psychology and psychological disorders.
The Psychology- Experimental course at the University of Oxford graduates enter a wide range of careers including professional psychology, education, research, medicine, the health services, finance, commerce, industry, the media and information technology. This degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership provided you achieve the minimum standard of second class honours.
During her time as a client consultant at Nunwood, Rachel said: ‘Since graduating I have worked for two large market research companies specialising in brands and advertising research. My degree helped me to develop my analytical skills as well as gaining project management experience which have been invaluable in my chosen career path.’
