Course summary

Birkbeck's Department of Psychological Sciences has an outstanding, world-class research tradition in functional neuroimaging and this Master's degree provides in-depth, hands-on research experience in a chosen area of psychologically relevant functional neuroimaging. You will be taught by academic researchers who are conducting their own cutting-edge research within world-renowned research institutes and groups. You will therefore gain exposure to neuroimaging set-ups specifically designed for studying development.

You will build a critical appreciation of existing research and research methods, while also developing essential practical skills, such as running a neuroimaging study and designing, managing and reporting on an extended research project. You will also develop subject-specific IT skills.

The course is designed for graduates in psychology, neuroscience, medical imaging or related disciplines who have prior research skills training and who want to complete a specific, well-defined research project. If you would like to carry out research in any area of psychologically relevant functional neuroimaging, either at PhD level or in the private sector, this degree will prepare you by giving you the research skills and practical experience you need.

This programme combines Birkbeck’s strengths in cognitive neuroscience with children and adults, in both typical and atypical populations. You will get extensive hands-on training in one of several neuroimaging methods available within the Department, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electrophysiological measure (EEG, ERP, ERO), near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). You will also have the opportunity to attend research seminars organised by the Department and other world-class research centres and institutes in central London.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework. The methods of assessment on this course are specified below under 'Methods of assessment on this course'. You will need to allow time to complete coursework and prepare for exams.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in psychology, education, human resources, and management. Possible professions may include psychologist, further education lecturer, or human resources officer. This degree may also be useful in becoming an advertising account planner or researcher.
