Course summary

Psychology is the scientific study of mind, brain and behaviour. It is strongly interconnected to other disciplines such as biology, physics, medicine, neuroscience, politics, sociology and economics.

We teach psychology as a rigorous experimental biological science. Our exciting and innovative 4-year MSci course allows you to engage fully with the theories, perspectives, and methods that are used to study the mind, the brain, and behaviour, whilst developing your practical, high-level skills in empirical investigation and scientific data analysis.

It will equip you with advanced training in research methods, statistics and specialisation in one of three pathways at the forefront of contemporary behavioural science.

These pathways are:

  • Clinical
  • Developmental Disorders
  • Neuroscience and Neuroimaging

The benefits of the MSci include the opportunity to:

  • Learn more about the most up-to-date thinking in key areas of Psychology
  • Gain extensive practical experience and knowledge by working closely with members of faculty
  • Develop your transferable and interpersonal skills to maximise your employment potential
  • Obtain a valuable masters-level qualification
  • Enhance your chances when applying for a PhD programme

Accreditation

This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society, assuring the quality and relevance of our teaching.

Careers and skills

Our graduates are highly successful in securing very competitive professional jobs (eg clinical or educational psychologist roles). Many positions require at least one year of experience working in the field, before starting professional training.

As an MSci graduate you will have a wide range of career options open to you. This masters level qualification will be an excellent springboard to clinical or educational psychology doctorate training positions or funded PhD positions for those wishing to pursue a research career in Psychology. The MSci may also put you at an advantage when applying for a specialist MSc if you are considering enrolling on Stage 1 training as a forensic psychologist. If you wish to pursue a career outside of Psychology, this degree will also equip you with key transferable skills, an understanding of people and the unique blend of arts and science skills that will make you highly competitive for entry into a wide variety of careers such as human resources, advertising, systems analysis, market research, teaching, social work, media, finance and management consultancy.
