Course summary

This unique MSc programme is aimed at developing an in-depth knowledge of applied psychology, including the moral, ethical and professional challenges seen when applying psychology to a range of local, national and global societal issues.

Specialist modules in the areas of health and social psychology will explore how we can understand real-world issues such as health promotion, environmental behaviour and prejudice & discrimination.

The applied focus will encourage students to critically consider how we can intervene to improve individual, organisational and societal health and social functioning.

The programme is focused on developing a range of research and professional skills which can be applied to a broad range of specialisms within and beyond Psychology. It will also develop your ability to critically reflect on your own professional challenges and development needs for working in the field of applied psychology.

Course Overview

This course explores how psychology can be applied to a range of exciting and topical real-world issues. Part One of the MSc consists of taught modules, leading then to the Part Two independent research project for the Applied Psychology Dissertation, where students will engage in an in-depth research project with supervision from an academic staff member with expertise in that area.

Taught by research-active staff with expertise in applied psychology, specialist modules in areas relating to health and social psychology explore how we can understand cutting edge issues such as health promotion, environmental behaviour and prejudice & discrimination. The applied focus will encourage you to critically consider how we can intervene to improve individual, organisational and societal health and social functioning.

The programme is focused on developing a range of research and professional skills which can be applied to a broad range of specialisms within and beyond Psychology. You will be challenged to become critical thinkers, developing the skillset and knowledge to be able to understand how to influence policy, work with community groups, and engage with individuals. A strong focus is on the development of a range of interpersonal and communication skills to enable you to confidently engage with professionals, colleagues and the general population in areas relating to the application of psychology to everyday life. You will be supported through the programme by a structured Personal Development Planning and mentoring process.
