Course content

Dig deeper into the scientific study of the most intricate machine imaginable: the human mind. This British Psychological Society (BPS) conversion programme is designed to introduce graduates of other disciplines to the fascinating field of psychology.

Psychology is a rewarding and valuable area of study. As a student of psychology, you’ll gain a scientific understanding of mind, brain, behaviour, experience, and of the complex interactions between these.

The MSc Psychology is designed to introduce graduates of other disciplines to the fascinating field of psychology. Students will be provided with the opportunity to study those topics which will confer eligibility for Graduate Basis of Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS) as long as a minimum level of performance is achieved.

The programme provides training in the scientific method and the history and philosophy of science. Psychology applies a rigorous scientific methodology to biological, linguistic, philosophical, socio-cultural, and anthropological topics. It is thus an inherently multidisciplinary subject.
