Course summary

What is special about this course?

Are you interested in the science of human behaviour and thought? Are you thinking about a career change or interested in how psychology might contribute to your existing career or interest? If so, this MSc Psychology Conversion is ideal.

This British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited online course will provide you with a broad and critical awareness of psychological theory and practice. Throughout the course you will develop an understanding of what drives people's behaviour, why we are unique and in what ways we are the same, and explore the theories which explain human behaviour and how they are relevant in today's society.

You will examine the core fields of psychology including biological, individual differences, cognitive, and social and developmental psychology, as set out by the British Psychological Society.

Alongside acquiring the key concepts and core knowledge of psychology, you will build strong project management, analytical and report-writing skills. Your learning experience will culminate in a substantial research project/dissertation, for which you will have support from your supervisor.

On successful completion of the programme you will be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis membership of the BPS. This allows you to go on to further masters level study in specialised vocational areas of psychology.

Two face-to-face blocks are held in Inverness in August/September and March/April. You must attend these to be eligible for BPS registration on graduation.
