Course content

This MSc in Social and Applied Psychology combines research method training with in-depth study of social and applied psychological topics.

You’ll study prejudice and intergroup relations, identity, attitudes and decision-making, emotion and social cognition, applied social psychology, and critical social psychology. You’ll get to grips with methodologies for social psychological research, including experimental design, measuring implicit and explicit attitudes, interviews and focus groups, experimental questionnaire design and field experiments. Plus, you’ll develop transferable skills in oral and written communication, and analysis of complex data sets.

The programme includes compulsory modules providing a solid grounding in the subject’s key areas, and optional modules chosen according to your specific interests. It builds towards a substantial piece of Master’s research, which you’ll undertake with the supervision of active researchers in the field. Take a look at the School of Psychology’s webpage to find a researcher who works on the topic that interests you. Learn to think like a social psychologist in seeking understanding of and solutions to modern life’s most practical and theoretical problems.
