This module critically explores the relationship between the mind and body. Students will be introduced to a variety of topics, ranging from psychoneuroimmunology to body adornment. Students will investigate current research into the mind-body connection from diverse fields. They will participate in a small group project researching a chosen facet of this bi-directional relationship and share their findings with the class.
Language Acquisition (STRO3103)
This module explores language acquisition of children from 0 - 11 years. It critically assesses the stages children go through to acquire language, and the key studies associated with these stages. The module examines the Critical Period, and the impact if a child misses this key developmental stage. Students will use case studies to critically assess the role of social interaction and gesture in language acquisition.
Psychology of Education (STRO3104)
This module uses psychological theory and research evidence to understand and interpret social and human behaviour in the context of education, across the lifespan. It will critically explore the relationship between contemporary perspectives on learning, theories of cognition, cognitive neuroscience, and classroom practice.

This module introduces students to organisational psychology. Students will learn about person-job interaction, organisational processes and strategies to improve employees’ performance and well-being. There will be a special focus on coaching in the workplace.

Students, supported by academic supervisors and specialist workshops, will conduct a complete piece of research, from establishing a research area, formulating a research question, conducting a literature search, designing and conducting a study that meets appropriate ethical standards, analysing the data and communicating the research to a variety of audiences.
