Course summary

Overview

Why do we behave the way we do? What predicts our behaviour? And how can we study behaviour scientifically? Our MSc in Psychology attempts to answer these questions using the scientific method.

This programme is designed for graduates who want to convert their existing degree into a recognised psychology qualification, for people looking to change career, or for anyone with an interest in the science of behaviour.

The programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and therefore confers Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).

It covers the major branches of psychology. This includes:

  • Biological psychology
  • Cognitive psychology
  • Conceptual and historical issues
  • Developmental psychology
  • Individual differences
  • Research methods
  • Social psychology

It also provides a series of electives including cultural psychology, the psychology of motivation, the psychology of humour, occupational psychology and the psychology of religion and belief which are offered subject to demand. The programme also offers an opportunity to study a foreign language in the second term.

You will also learn a range of research skills, such as:

  • Communicating findings
  • Conducting laboratory experiments
  • Designing studies
  • Evaluating evidence
  • Statistical analysis

You will have access to a dedicated psychology laboratory and testing cubicles and to specialist equipment which will enable you to carry out eye-tracking, and record brain electrical activity, heart rate, pulmonary response, blood pressure and olfactory testing.

Careers

On successful completion of this programme you will be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society, which is a requirement for undertaking professional BPS postgraduate training programmes in psychology in the UK (e.g. training to become a clinical or educational or counselling psychologist).
