Department of Psychology
I'm in my 2nd year of Psychology here at Warwick. My favourite aspect of the course is its youth. Psychology is still in its infancy within the world of science which means that it's susceptible to question and nothing is set in stone; we are always at the cutting edge of the subject.
" We're very much community-led and we have a very warm and welcoming environment. We also have some leading experts in their field and some very passionate and dedicated professionals, who are there to pass on information via their research and their teaching."

Dual-task performance and telephone use while driving
Dr Melina Kunar's research undertaken at Warwick and Harvard found that people who were having a telephone conversation (even when using a hands-free device) suffered from impaired visual attention. The research results led to instructional changes in driving and safety education by Dorset Police, and are being used to develop driver training courses in Dorset.
