Applicants whose first degree is not in psychology will be accepted on a case-by-case basis to ensure that they have covered sufficient levels of psychology and research methods during their first degree.

Course content

In drawing together the complementary fields of community psychology and critical social psychology, we have sought to develop an MSc that will appeal to students who value a focus on social critique and social justice in conjunction with a rigourous and scholarly approach to the discipline of psychology. The Community & Critical Social Psychology (CCSP) MSc will thus enable you to take a fresh approach to psychology, involving a focus on critique of accepted ways of working within the discipline and engagements with pressing 'real-world' concerns.

Information for international students

Applicants whose first language is not English should have IELTS at grade 6.5 or above (including a minimum of 6.5 in the writing component) or another acceptable English Language qualification.
