The group is comprised of internationally renowned researchers who have established a worldwide reputation for their work in Social, Environmental and Organisational Psychology.

Our research is funded by major grants from UK research councils, from Government and industry. Our researchers have received prestigious international awards and editorial appointments, and many of our research students have been singled out for ESRC awards. All these successes reflect the international reputation of the group.

We also host a vibrant teaching programme. Our subjects are popular among undergraduate students and postgraduates alike. We are responsible for a very successful Msc programme within the school.
