Whether it’s keeping in touch with family and friends via Zoom, shopping on Amazon, getting our ‘news’ from social networks or taking part in ‘E’ sports cyberpsychology is increasingly the study of ‘everyday’ human behaviour.
Environmental Psychology is broadly defined as the relationships between humans and their environment. This can be viewed from two perspectives: 1. How the physical environment influences on human behaviour and 2. How our behaviour influences the physical environment. This degree provides you with the knowledge and understanding of the theory and application of Environmental Psychology to the practical problems of sustainability and environmental behaviour that are so essential to global changes and challenges.
The Forensic Psychology programme at UEL covers a broad scope of interesting areas that relate to criminal behaviour, the Criminal Justice System and the legal processes within this. We offer an innovative programme which covers contemporary areas, including Honour killings, trauma and restorative justice. We have also tailored the programme for individuals who may pursue a career in forensic practice and engage with practitioner resilience, alongside ethical issues within the field. We use a range of interesting teaching practices, including online and in-person debate, case studies and examples of miscarriages of justice, to engage with challenges in the field.
