Course summary

This British Psychological Society-accredited Psychology and Psychological Research MSci programme is designed for those considering a career in research (e.g., working for universities, think tanks and consulting).

Psychologists work in basic and applied research in fields that include education and child development, clinical work, the courtroom (acting as expert witnesses), industry (helping to design efficient machines or optimising business organisations), and in universities researching every branch of human behaviour from visual perception to sexuality.

Assessment Methods

Studying at degree level is likely to be very different from your previous experience of education at school or college. You will be expected to think, discuss and engage critically with the subject and find things out for yourself. We will enable you to make this transition to a new style of learning, and the way that you are assessed during your studies will help you develop the essential skills you need to make a success of your time at Birmingham.

Assessment varies dependent on the modules you study but you can expect to complete essays, lab reports, abstracts, grant proposals, oral presentations, short answer questions and multiple-choice examinations, in addition to your third-year research project (dissertation). In the fourth year you will be assessed similarly, with the placement and research project also assessed.

Employability:

This MSci programme focuses on developing research skills of students. Research skills are versatile and transferable, and so they are useful in a variety of workplaces. Lecturing, consulting and thinktanks are just a few of the possible career paths. Research assistantships in psychological laboratories may be one of the entry-level jobs that you may find attractive upon graduation.
