Course Summary

Course Overview

Our MSc Psychology offers the opportunity to develop your career potential by studying the application of psychology within the modern workplace.

You will develop your understanding of psychology and how you can apply it to issues such as special educational needs and disability, criminality, mental health and dementia and will have a greater understanding of working with and supporting a variety of different people. You will work with the lecturers to elect which everyday issues you wish to explore through teaching and assessments, alongside the core curriculum.

The core curriculum is delivered in lectures with psychology students from a range of undergraduate and postgraduate psychology programmes. This is supplemented by small group teaching and workshops. The assessments not only review your knowledge but offer the opportunity to develop skills for the modern workplace.

This MSc Psychology explores the key areas of psychology: cognitive, biological, developmental, social, individual differences and psychological research methods, plus you will complete an independent project and research dissertation. An application for course accreditation has been submitted to The British Psychological Society (BPS).

How will you be taught?

The ethos of the programme is blended learning, where lectures are online, or in person if you prefer, and small group discussions are the key to generating knowledge and critical thinking. You will have open access to the psychology labs, time and space to run your own research and opportunities to deepen your understanding through online materials.

How will you be assessed?

We have literature reviews, project reports, designing of assessments and artefacts, presenting, or writing an article. Assessments are deigned to offer you the ability to demonstrate your knowledge and provide you with skills for your career.

What might you become?

Your psychology degree will give you the transferable skills that employers want, whether you are looking at private or public sector careers. It is also a first step towards a career in educational, forensic, clinical, counselling or sports and exercise psychology. It can lead to a career in academia or research through starting postgraduate study and developing to a phD programme.

Modules

This module explore the concept of self and personality, discover how the groups we belong to influence our behaviour and thinking patterns and apply this knowledge to yourself and working with others in our professional contexts.
