How do you apply psychological theory and research to understand ‘real world’ issues affecting the health and well-being of different groups across society? 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.

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.
