Psychological and Behavioural Sciences Tripos


PBS students take four papers in their second year. Two papers are compulsory, PBS 3: Social and Developmental Psychology, and PBS 4: Cognitive Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology. Students then choose two further optional papers. A list of optional papers available to students is published before the end of the previous academic year, but choices normally includes papers on Biological Anthropology, the History and Philosophy of Science, Neurobiology, Philosophy and Sociology.

Documentation for 2022-23 will be added over the summer.
