Course content

As Psychology reaches out to tackle the big questions facing society today, skills and experience in psychological research are becoming more and more in demand. Our MSc in Psychology offers students an exciting course with the flexibility to develop specific interests, whilst at the same time an excellent opportunity to develop the technical and transferable skills needed to succeed in a wide range of research-related jobs.

The course uses a range of taught modules, a major research placement module and an independent research project leading to a dissertation.

Key features of the course are:

  • One to one contact with research active staff
  • An opportunity to specialize if you already know what area excites you most, or if you are still developing your focus, design your course to be broader, developing your knowledge in more than one sub-speciality
  • Find out what’s really hot or not in contemporary Psychology
  • Learn transferable skills that enhance employability
