Course summary

Psychology gives us valuable insight into many areas of life — from human behaviour in the classroom or courtroom to animal cognition and natural selection. This new Masters is designed for students who have undertaken a degree in another subject and are interested in getting a qualification in psychology. This multifaceted programme will help you take your first step towards a career as a psychologist. In the first semester you will cover a range of key areas including biological psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology and research methods. In the second semester you will cover research methods in more depth (including qualitative methods), developmental psychology, individual differences and clinical psychology. Through these taught modules you will build up a strong knowledge base to build a research project, which you will undertake in your final semester. No prior psychology undergraduate degree needed.

  • Learn from experts in the field who take a rigorous, biological approach to psychology, studying it as a natural and experimental science
  • Receive hands-on training across a wide range of research methods (including qualitative methods) and the opportunity to apply these methods through empirical studies in either laboratory or naturalistic settings
  • Benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, including the Electroencephalography (EEG) Lab and the Behavioural Lab, where computer-based experiments can be run using various psychological software tools
  • Excellent employment prospects with students progressing onto research PhDs, clinical training, forensic psychology, organisational psychology and careers in social work, coaching or education
