Modules

In this module, you will learn important skills that will enable you to study and research psychology successfully. In particular, this module will provide invaluable training that will support the other modules you will undertake during your Masters. The initial six sessions are core for all students. In these sessions you will gain a deeper understanding of the ethical issues that surround research in psychology, and learn how best to communicate your research ideas using a range of methods (oral presentations, posters, written research proposals and on TV, radio or in the press). In addition, the flexible nature of this module permits you to choose at least five from a wide range of optional sessions in order to make up the requisite number of eleven sessions. These choices are made dependent upon your MSc programme, self-assessment skills audit, interests and future aspirations. Indicative sessions might include writing up research for publication, learning how to use software such as e-Prime and Matlab, survey design, qualitative methods, observational techniques, use of statistical graphics and library skills training.
