At Liverpool Hope, the Psychology Department is a vibrant, supportive and dynamic academic community. All staff are research active, regularly publishing in international peer reviewed journals. Our research informs teaching across different areas such as cognitive psychology and neuroscience, developmental, social, clinical, health, personality, forensic and political psychology.
All our undergraduate degree programmes are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS); successful completion of our programmes (both our undergraduate degree programmes and our MSc in Psychology) confers eligibility for Graduate Basis of Chartered Membership (GBC), whilst successful completion of our MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging bridges the gap between undergraduate level study and PhD research in cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging and experimental psychology. This professional accreditation will give you access to the postgraduate training courses of the BPS and will be your first major step in becoming a professional psychologist.
As a Liverpool Hope Psychology student, you will engage in a scientific career supported by an enthusiastic team. You will be able to follow your own area of interests and conduct your own research studies. You will have access to a wide range of research facilities including observation, transcription and colour vision labs as well as having the opportunity to learn how to use cutting-edge, professional equipment including Electroencephalography (EEG), Electromyography (EMG), Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) and Eye tracking technology, housed in our laboratories.
All academic staff are engaged in supervising and supporting the research activities of psychology students.
