The Grand Union DTP and its pathways

The Grand Union DTP is an ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership uniting The Open University, the University of Oxford and Brunel University London. The partnership builds on the recognised research and doctoral training strengths of all three institutions. The DTP covers 24 subject areas ('pathways'), themed into five broad clusters.

Psychology - Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, The Open University

The Psychology pathway at the Open University is hosted by the School of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts and Social Science. Focusing particularly on applied and critical social psychology, the pathway seeks to draw attention to, and challenges, social injustices in areas such as gender, race, immigration, poverty and sexuality. Connecting theoretical movements include feminism, subjectivities, sociocultural theory, psychosocial studies, phenomenology, critical discourse analysis, narrative analysis, Q methodology and dialogical approaches. Applicants are invited to link to our thematic areas focusing on occasions of social transition, personal transformation and emergent and contested cultural and political issues. Open University psychology research provides new empirical insight into real-world issues relating to questions of movement across boundaries and changing gendered, religious, sexual and political subjectivities in concrete contexts.

Please see a more detailed list of topics within and across each theme.

Psychology at the Open University has an internationally recognised reputation for developing theory and methodology, and applying psychology in a variety of settings with wider societal impact. The pathway will equip students to examine complex psychological phenomenon using both established and innovative social research methodologies to address these wider challenges.
