Course content

Our psychology degree provides the opportunity for you to gain an understanding of a specific academic discipline while you will acquire a number of transferable skills that are important in the job market.

Our course is ideal if you possess an Honours degree in a discipline other than psychology, or if you have a non-accredited psychology Honours degree and wish to specialise in psychology.

Through the degree you will gain a scientific understanding of the mind, brain and behaviour. Key skills will be developed in the collection, analysis and interpretation of data, which in turn will contribute to an understanding of the research and investigation process.

A strong applied focus reflects the teaching and research strengths of the psychology group, with emphasis on the importance of employability. We support students in developing and recognising both generic and transferable skills.

The MSc Psychology course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
