Course summary

This programme offers a stimulating and challenging environment where you can build on your existing learning experiences to advance your academic and professional development in Psychology.

You will gain specialised knowledge and a critical awareness of issues at the forefront of interpersonal violence and abuse studies. Teaching is done through a variety of blended learning and campus-based activities explicitly designed to meet the needs of learners working in a range of contexts.

Course overview

If you have a background in psychology, sociology or criminology, our MSc course will allow you to gain deeper insight into the effects of being abusive or being abused.

You'll develop comprehensive knowledge and understanding of a broad range of topics pertinent to interpersonal violence and abuse. You'll examine the impact of abuse in different international, cultural and social contexts, and you'll have the chance to examine practice and research from theoretical perspectives.

HOW YOU WILL LEARN

A variety of teaching and learning methods are used throughout the programme. Special consideration has been given to the Learning, Teaching and Assessment strategies of the future MSc candidates. Whilst we acknowledge their previous undergraduate experiences, these must be balanced against an entirely new subject area. The strategies used are designed to match the learning outcomes and to provide every student with some experience of methods best suited to their own learning style, encouraging independent learning and acknowledging previous study.
