Develop a sound understanding in psychological theory and research, to convert your existing bachelor's degree into a Masters in Psychology, and take your first step towards a career as a psychologist. Gain a scientific understanding of the mind, brain and human behaviour, and how they interact within complex environments. You will be encouraged to consider multiple perspectives, to critically evaluate and reflect upon psychological theory and research findings, as well as how to apply psychological understanding to practice. You’ll learn from enthusiastic and dedicated tutors, who are also practitioners and involved in the latest research. The impact of the research submitted by our Department of Psychology is rated ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ (Research Excellence Framework 2014). You will benefit from our world-class library, specialist research equipment (including EEG machines and access to an fMRI scanner) and state of the art teaching facilities. Subject to accreditation by the British Psychological Society (BPS), when you graduate you will be able to gain Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) which will allow you to pursue other professional psychology postgraduate programmes, and take the next step towards a career as a chartered psychologist.
