Clinical Psychology

15 Credits

The Clinical Psychology course furthers students’ exploration of the biological and neuroscientific basis of psychology, aiming to apply the principles of biology to the study of physiological and genetic mechanisms of behaviour. 

Students investigate the principles of mental health and psychopathology, the scientific study of mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and schizophrenia and the clinical psychological aspects of their different biological-based and cognitive-behavioural treatment approaches.

Teaching includes ten 90-minute lectures and two 45-minute tutorials per student. These lectures are designed to capture students’ interest and excite their curiosity and allow interactivity and a short time of discussion and questioning, to engage students in the complex discussions surrounding psychology, throughout or at the end of each lecture, as appropriate.
