Overview Discover how human psychology is influenced by society and by the people – real, implied and imagined – that surround us. Throughout this programme, you'll study a range of theoretical ideas and develop expert research skills. You’ll have access to excellent facilities and cutting-edge equipment for teaching and research, and as you gain an in-depth understanding of human psychology you’ll develop a range of key skills valued by employers. You’ll benefit from research-led teaching in a balance of smaller and larger groups. The MSci Psychology programmes are designed to meet the needs of students who want to plan postgraduate study well in advance to enhance their academic and professional profiles. Taking an integrated Master's year means that your research enthusiasm and interests developed over three years of study can be extended in an interconnected and coherent way. About This Course The MSci programme provides a rigorous approach to the range of psychological sciences combined with the opportunity to specialise in a particular sphere of knowledge on human behaviour and experience. On this course, you’ll gain a strong grounding in key theories and research methods of social psychology. You'll study topics such as forensic psychology, family life, the psychology of good and evil, the psychology of mental health, social groups and behavioural change. Throughout your degree, you’ll study a range of theoretical ideas and develop expert research skills. In your third and fourth years, you'll also implement an individual research project, related to a social psychological topic. Past students have chosen areas such as substance alcohol use, implicit cognition, conspiracy theories, stereotyping and prejudice, and perceptions of ex-offenders. Your specialist knowledge and skills will develop as you select specific options and engage in higher level research in years 3 and 4. You'll be able to choose from a range of psychology modules according to your interests, be they broad or specific. You’ll also have the chance to experience topics you may not have come across before. If you discover a new passion or interest during your first year, you’ll have the option to change to a different Psychology pathway, ensuring you’re on the right degree for you.
