**Why choose this course?**
Kingston's psychology degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society, and allows you to take the first step to becoming a chartered psychologist. You'll combine theory with practice and get to use psychological analysis equipment like eye trackers, a driving simulator, EEG (the recording of brain activity) and specialist survey software.
You can specialise in particular areas of interest, including cyberbullying, schizophrenia, decision making and risk taking, forensic psychology, autism, face perception and prejudice. Our close links with a network of schools, hospitals and clinics will expose you to real-life working environments and add valuable work experience to your CV.
You'll also get to take part in our annual School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences theme week. Regular teaching is replaced with a series of workshops, presentations, discussion and reading groups on a contemporary social issue such as race, war or gender. Our renowned keynote speaker last year was Baroness Shami Chakrabati, British Labour Party politician and member of the House of Lords.
The degree is taught by research-active academics with specialist areas of expertise. Students are encouraged to participate in original research projects with staff throughout the course, and may have the opportunity to publish and present findings.
