This course takes a new social psychological approach to understanding issues of diversity and marginalisation which is rarely represented in psychology programmes and so offers something new to those already studying psychology. Teaching is informed by the innovative real-world research being conducted by course tutors in this exciting field.

You will engage in a range of learning activities which may include lectures, workshops, film discussions,field trips and participation in sessions with local community organisations and charities who strive to improve the health and well-being of all communities across Nottingham.

We are very proud to announce that in October 2019 the Department of Psychology were successful in gaining an Athena SWAN Bronze award!

Target group

This course is ideal for students who have completed at least one-year of undergraduate studies and does not require previous experience in psychology.

Course aim

By doing this course you will gain an understanding of how to do this effectively using your own experiences of living in a range of different communities. You will consider the challenges facing socially marginalised communities, understand the psychological factors that underlie these challenges, and explore methods and approaches to address them.
