    Course Summary

    Psychology is the study of human perception and decision-making. This includes motivations, prejudices and social constructs as well as basics like language and memory. Neuroscience is dedicated to defining what these processes are and how they are physically represented in the brain. Together, these two disciplines work to uncover not just how humans think, but why we think, and what mechanisms we use to do it.

    The University of Essex’s Psychology with Cognitive Neuroscience degree is one of the most advanced in this field, allowing students to discover how we process senses such as touch, hearing and vision as well as the way we acquire and use languages, manage social processes, process emotions and even navigate our world.

    The University of Essex provides a unique route to this degree, as their students work in the same laboratories as some of the foremost experts in the field. Their Research Experience Scheme lets students become on-on-one research assistants to these field leaders.
