MSc - Master of Science
Learn about the science and practice of applying evidence-based psychological interventions to improve the wellbeing of individuals and solve organisational and societal problems.
Psychology is a discipline which can be applied to almost any field of work. Using scientifically tested psychological principles and processes, we can support individuals and groups, organisations, and professions in achieving their goals. From health promotion to consumer behaviour, the applications of psychology are pervasive in today’s modern society.
Why study this course with us?
The Master's in Applied Psychology programme is focused on the applications of psychology in every day. The programme may be of interest to those who wish to apply their psychological knowledge to other careers or disciplines, such as but not limited to management and human resources, teaching, marketing, or health. This programme can also be a useful steppingstone for those considering future professional or doctoral training in psychology or allied fields.
Our programme is designed specifically for graduates who already have a good grounding in psychology, who wish to learn how psychological knowledge can be applied to real-world issues. Much of the teaching takes an active learning approach, whereby students are supported in their learning through practical exercises and experiential learning. The programme is taught by a highly qualified team, with experience of the varied ways in which psychology can be applied.
Assessment types are varied on this programme, to reflect the diversity of applications of psychology can have in the real world. There is heavy use of coursework, including portfolios, role play videos, presentations, and lab reports together with some written tests.
The course will be suitable for those thinking of a career in psychology who wish to undertake a more generic MSc prior to Stage 1 or Professional Doctoral training, and those who wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding prior to a career where psychology is a central aspect. The programme does not confer Practitioner Psychologist status.
