The subject is what it says it is, but overall I found it a bit too easy and simplified for my liking. I often wanted to go into more nuance, both in discussion and in reports, but the material we were given to use put ideas into overly neat boxes. My background is in psychology and I did this 2nd-year subject in my 3rd year, so perhaps this is why I found the subject oversimplified; maybe those who have no background in psychology would find this complicated and have a lot to learn. The actual ideas in the subject are useful to think about and be aware of but I would warn anyone new to the field of psychology to keep in mind that this subject oversimplifies things at times. My tutor was really good though, highly engaging and kept the classes interesting and inclusive. Also, if you are looking to become more environmentally conscious in your own life, this subject is good for encouraging you to do that; the applications questions are designed to get you to reflect on your own behaviour and psychology.

Subject was delivered in a pretty messy manner tbh. It should’ve been classified as an Arts rather than a Science subject. The lecturer was decent and delivered her content well. However, the online delivery of this subject wasn’t great and made it hard to keep up with. Not too sure about the other tutors but mine wasn’t very helpful and wasn’t very clear on what was expected in the essay reports. (Proof: Number of students attending her classes dwindled HORRIBLY as weeks went by). She also marked the essays pretty harshly. Some readings were cool but some were pretty lengthy and boring. They played a huge part in your overall performance though. So, if you’re not someone to fancy loads of lengthy reading, you might wanna reconsider taking this subject. A friend of mine said another tutor, Roni, was cool.

This was a pretty good subject. The assessment was decent. You'll do quite well if you're good at succinctly writing reports and essays. At times my tutor, Roni, gave different advice to the subject coordinator which made marking quite harsh for the research reports. However, the content was super interesting and the readings really broadened my knowledge on how I can be more environmentally sustainable! I got a H1 in this subject but it wasn't easy. The take-home-exam required an application of the entire Semester's content, so make sure you're always doing the readings and keeping up to date with the material - the weekly application questions were quite useful for this. The subject coordinator, Katherine, was great with responding to questions on the discussion board regularly which was very helpful!

The content is interesting if you're into sustainability or environmental psychology. The workload is fairly light and the teaching staff were great too. Not an easy H1 but you'll be able to do well if you're good at writing reports/essays.

Very interesting subject, definitely broadened my knowledge regarding the environment and the importance of sustainability. Even liked the readings that they give out lol. I think the content is crucial for the future as well (very applicable).

Full blown arts subject, not science. Very airy fairy

One of my favourite subjects. While it is on the easier side in terms of content and assessments, the topics are super interesting and the work has a more practical feel to it rather than pure theory and essay writing. It is the kind of subject that you feel could actually be useful in future professions outside of uni.

Not too content heavy, took it as a first year student in second semester. But it was a bit inconsiderate how they assumed that everyone was either second or third year so the first assignment for me was really disappointing as I have never written any essay relating to psychology subjects. Relatively interesting subject, would recommend if you are looking for something not too content heavy.

The coordinator is a heartless and horrible person. Make sure you don't stuff up anything otherwise you'll need a reason like someone died or i went to hospital to get her to even consider taking you seriously. Tutors were great though. Go for tutes! Subject was interesting but then again so are loads of things. Easy to score if you don't have any unforeseen circumstances actually impeding you from a smooth-sailing semester

Easy subject. Assignments are easy to do but you must have a good knowledge of the theories and be good at writing essays
