Psychology at Queen Mary is taught as part of the School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences.

If you study our BSc Psychology, you’ll learn about cognitive, social, developmental and abnormal psychology and then apply this knowledge in topics such as counselling and health psychology.

At postgraduate level, we offer programmes in psychology and mental health including specialist degrees covering cultural psychology and psychiatry, forensic psychology and joint options with creative arts, economics, and public health.

Studying as an undergraduate student at Queen Mary was one of the greatest experiences of my life – so much that I decided to stay here to complete my PhD! As an undergraduate, I studied BSc Psychology. The course at Queen Mary was unlike any other top university course, as it had a strong biological and statistical component that prepared me for transferring straight from an undergraduate to a PhD programme.
