Study abroad - Psychology
Students have an opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our selected European partner universities. Students will complete the equivalent of 40 credits, or two modules, at the overseas University, which will be converted to Hull credits upon return.
Psychology and Health
You'll study health psychology, which is the application of psychology to the many social and clinical factors surrounding health, illness and health-related behaviours. The functioning of health care systems, such as the National Health Service, is also considered.
Explore the effects of brain lesions and neurological diseases on cognition and behaviour. You will be taught on the major neurological deficits and syndromes found with central nervous system malfunctions including their assessment and treatment.
Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness and Wellbeing
You will study the core concepts within the positive psychology movement and how this applies to different groups of people. You will also study measurement of happiness and wellbeing an applications within communities.
Learn about the psychological origins of crime, how psychology can inform crime detection and what psychologists can do to reduce offending.
Clinical Applications of Neuroscience: Theory and Practice
Gain a deeper understanding of a select range of neuroscience techniques. You'll learn through studying the theoretical background, and through first-hand practical experience in application and data analysis methods.
Understanding Animal Minds
Explore the mind and behaviour of human and nonhuman animals from a perspective adopted by naturalists, biologists, cognitive neuroscientists and experimental psychologists. We will examine the biological principles underlying brain evolution. The seminars will unpack these different elements, while a field trip will allow you to observe and record behaviour in a semi-natural environment.
The Social Brain and Autism
You will gain an understanding of the intricate ways in which psychology, philosophy and neuroscience contribute to the current insights about how the brain enables social cognition and how that helps us understand autism.
Memory in the Real World
This module will provide students with an understanding of human memory and its importance in everyday life. Topics covered include autobiographical memory, prospective memory, false memories, long-term knowledge, and memory for emotional events.
Advanced Topics in Cognitive Development
This module covers core areas of theoretical debate in cognitive development, in particular modularity and domain-specificity. You will study how these debates inform current developmental psychology research into topics such as the understanding of the physical world, theory of mind and executive functions.
Psychology in Education
Develop an understanding of the ways that individual variations in learning needs in children and adolescents manifest themselves in education.
The Ageing Brain
Gain an understanding of ageing within the human brain. You'll explore the environmental, behavioural, psychological, and neurobiological underpinnings of normal and abnormal ageing, including age-related brain diseases and disorders, particularly dementia.
Clinical and Therapeutic Issues in Clinical Psychology
Discover the importance of the therapeutic relationship in clinical psychology. This module will allow you to explore clinical and therapeutic issues relating to a range of differing therapeutic approaches commonly used in clinical psychology.
Professional, Ethical, and Personal Issues in Clinical Psychology
Gain an introduction to the profession of clinical psychology, its role and context in the NHS and the importance of self-awareness in ethical practice and professional development. You will be able to explore the philosophy and core purpose of the profession, as well as the nature and role of its code of conduct.
Introduction to Assessment in Clinical Psychology
Gain a thorough insight into the main principles and theoretical underpinnings of holistic assessment in clinical psychology. You'll explore topics including: clinical interview and history taking; psychometric assessments across the lifespan; risk assessment; use of outcome measures; and formulation in clinical practice.
