    What field of Psychology interests you the most? And why?

    Would you consider studying that field all the way up to career level or just for now?

    Developmental or environmental psychology I just think it's so interesting, and there's so much more to learn about it.

    I also really truly loved every topic I covered in environmental psychology, I'm not sure whether it's classed a one of the major ''fields'' though because it had a lot of other things lumped in with it. Personal space and territory, and the effects of climate and weather were my favourites though.

    Topics were:
    • Disaster and catastrophe.
    • Climate and weather.
    • Personal space and territory.
    • Environmental cognition.
    • Crowds and collective behaviour.
    • Architecture and behaviour.
    • Density and crowding.
    • Environmental stress and noise.


    I would definitely do it to degree level/do modules in it if I could. No more psychology for me otherwise!

    Neuropsychology. I became interested a looong time ago after a friend suffered a traumatic brain injury. He's ok now. He'll never be the same as he was before the accident but he's still perfect And his situation inspired me to learn. Once I've done the postgrad clin.psych stuff I want to specialise in neuropsych.

    :wavey: Hi KMN!

    My fav field is Neuroscience/Neuropsychology.

    If I'm not accepted into graduate medicine, I'd do a MSc in Neuroscience and re-apply.

    Come 5 failed applications later, I'd probably do a PhD on a neuro topic of some sort.

    Very interesting. I've never heard of environmental psychology before!

    I suppose mine would be forensic psychology and social psychology, the reasons behind why people do things and how to stop/help them interests me greatly. Would love to study either!

    Neuroscience, more so than just neuropsychology.

    Mainly because im interested in functional disorders and dementias and would love to study them with few limitations wether it be nerve studies or imaging.

    My career plan is much like Godspeedghenna's to go onto research in neuroscience if med app keeps failing. Anyway still early days and havent completed my ucas and have only just sat the UKCAT.

    Well, Jimbu, you could try Sussex, they include psychology as a science, and it's neuroscience. So I just wanted to let you know, so if you do psychology, then you have nothing to worry about!

    Anyway, sorry if I was useless, I'm just trying to be helpful. Anyway, my favourite part is neuroscience, and I'm with GSR, especially on the career plan.

    I believe Jimbu is a third year Psych student. He was talking about grad med when he mentioned his A-levels.
