Course Summary

The rapidly expanding Department of Psychology has a distinctive research profile and a long-standing record of cutting-edge, theoretically-informed research in applied aspects of psychology. It has a strong tradition of interdisciplinary work and collaborates with other departments in the University of Bath, local and national institutions, and international networks. Main areas of research: Behaviour Change and Mental Health Interventions; BioSocial, Cognitive-Affective Psychology; Digital Behaviour and Change; Identities in Social and Digital Contexts. The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme comprises a significant piece of research which will enable you to contribute to the academic community through a large written thesis (typically up to 90,000 words). This interdisciplinary pathway generally explores the interface between security, energy and the environment through engaging the latest critical thinking on risk management, critical infrastructure, public regulation, policy studies and the environmental sciences. This pathway considers the impacts of living with environmental change and the diverse responses needed to foster behaviours, practices and policies which promote sustainability and resilience. This course is accredited by the Economics & Social Research Council (ESRC) as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP).
