Psychological and Behavioural Sciences Tripos
Psychological and Behavioural Sciences (PBS) is an exciting new undergraduate course for 2013 entry. It provides the opportunity to study all aspects of psychology: from social relations to neurological processes; or from how a child develops emotionally and intellectually to how someone may suffer from the loss of psychological functions owing to illness, age, or accident.
Applicants for this course need not have studied psychology before. Learning the subject requires intellectual ability and the capacity to analyse and understand theories that have their roots in a broad range of subjects in the humanities and sciences. An education that has developed this intellectual flexibility and a passion for the subject matter is what is required.
