Psychology at the University of Suffolk explores and examines the interaction between mind and behaviour, the nature of the unconscious, the functioning of memory, individual behaviour in social situations, prejudice and altruism. This equips students with a thorough grounding in each of the major fields: social psychology; developmental psychology; biological psychology; and cognitive psychology.
