Course summary

Overview

Applied psychology uses scientific psychological principles, methods and findings to study and solve problems associated with the human mind and behaviour. It is widely used in mental health, occupational psychology, business management, education, health, criminology and law.

This course is aimed at graduates who have previously studied psychology and want the opportunity to further their knowledge to an advanced level, as well as the chance to develop an understanding of how psychology is applied to a particular aspect of real life. Areas of applied psychology studied include educational psychology, child psychology, clinical psychology and counselling psychology.

The extended version of the course ‘with Professional Experience’ contains substantive placement experience* which aims to enable you to gain real world experience in an applied psychology-relevant setting.

This course is accredited by Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
