Course content

This challenging, and highly competitive campus-based Psychology (Conversion) MSc will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of biological, developmental, cognitive and social psychology and research methods in psychology.

Psychology is the scientific study of how people behave, feel, think and learn. In keeping with the strong research ethos of the University of Liverpool, the course is research-led and modules have been developed with full support of the prestigious research groups in the Department of Psychology. Also, reflecting the global character of the University, the programme approaches theoretical and applied developments in Psychology from an open-minded perspective that values diversity and cross-culturalism.

This programme is fully accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), granting eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership upon graduation. If you are a graduate in a subject other than psychology, or you have a psychology degree that isn’t accredited by the BPS, this programme is an excellent first step towards a career as a professional psychologist (Clinical or Clinical Neuropsychology, Counselling, Educational Child Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Sports and Exercise Psychology or Occupational Psychology).
