This interdisciplinary pathway focuses on social science aspects of psychology (social, cognitive, developmental, environmental, health, clinical, and forensic) and understanding issues of societal importance/ESRC priorities such as climate change and sustainability, and improving health, and well-being. Swansea has particular strengths in forensic and health psychology, nutrition and appetite, behavioural addiction, and sustainable well-being. We also have a number of strategic partnerships with the Health Board, the Welsh Government, local charities, the food industry, His Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service, and others and many students benefit from these opportunities to perform impactful research with lasting benefits.
Swansea is home to a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive PGR community that benefits from an annual faculty-wide PGR conference, PGR festival, newly refurbished state-of-the-art Psychology laboratories, and dedicated PGR Academy that provides critical support and training opportunities.
To receive ESRC studentship funding, you must have qualifications or experience equal to an honours degree at a first or upper second-class level, or a master's from a UK academic research organisation.
Students with non-traditional academic backgrounds are also welcome to apply.
