Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

This programme has been developed for students who are interested in gaining an advanced understanding of psychological methods and theory as well as an appreciation of health inequalities from an interdisciplinary perspective. The MSc in Psychology and Health Inequalities has been designed to give you advanced training in psychological research methods and analysis, whilst also introducing advanced study of health inequalities from a wide range of perspectives, including psychological, sociological, linguistic, and epidemiological. In addition to your taught components, you will have the opportunity to undertake a dissertation project on a topic of your choice under the supervision of a research-active member of staff. Keele has a well-established and growing community of researchers in health inequalities. Recent research within the School of Psychology has considered health from the perspectives of older adults, LGBTQ communities, people with intellectual disabilities, gender, new mothers, and Eastern European migrants, amongst others. Our MSc Psychology programmes are designed to foster a vibrant and collaborative peer culture amongst our MSc students. We know it’s vital that you develop the advanced specialised skills you will need to pursue careers in your chosen fields. Throughout your MSc degree you are supported and encouraged to focus your work to help you conduct in-depth explorations of Psychology and Health Inequalities and your personal interests.

HOW YOU'LL BE ASSESSED

Each module has different prescribed learning activities, including formal lectures and seminars, discussions and consultation with staff. You should expect some lively debates and interesting discussions. Please be aware that you will be expected to contribute to the programme, in the form of advance reading (of which there is a substantial amount), preparing presentations and contributing to discussions in seminars, and bringing your own ideas to bear on the teaching material.

Graduates of our programme will leave equipped with a range of psychological research, analysis and communication skills, which, in conjunction with advanced study of health inequalities will give you the necessary expertise and knowledge to pursue research in academia or to work in related careers in the private, public or third sectors, for example in government, charities, social enterprises or business.
