Program Overview

Why choose this course

  • Access our state-of-the-art psychology facilities, including a virtual reality suite and two observation laboratories, and use the latest equipment to conduct experiments.
  • Learn from lecturers who are active researchers in environmental change, restorative environments, sustainable living and much more.

You’ll address issues around architectural psychology, social change and sustainable development, while reviewing the major theoretical formulations and models within environmental psychology. We’ll also give you an insight into qualitative and quantitative research methods, including the use of statistics, ensuring you have a solid foundation to collect, analyse and interpret data.
