Course summary

MSc by Research students are able to conduct independent research into an area of psychology of their own choice and produce a thesis with guidance from two academic supervisors who have specialist knowledge of the subject area. Students can also receive training in the research methods relevant for their project and are expected to contribute to the School’s research environment.

The MSc by Research programme is most suitable for students who want to gain advanced experience of research in psychology before deciding whether they want to apply for an MPhil/PhD. The thesis for a MSc by Research is a smaller piece of work that the thesis required for an MPhil/PhD, and it usually contains 1 or 2 chapters with novel results. Students have the option to enrol in the MSc by Research programme and then transfer to a MPhil/PhD within the first 8 months of their degree.

The School’s active research base ensures academic staff are involved in current debates and that they are up-to-date with emerging developments in psychology. Research in the School is organised in three research groups (forensic and clinical psychology; perception, action, and cognition; development and social behaviour) and two research centres (autism research innovation; Lincoln sleep).
