Course Summary

The School of Psychological Sciences & Health, in collaboration with the globally renowned Strathclyde Business School is offering a unique new Masters programme.

The distinctive nature of the programme lies in its flexible online mode of delivery. Successful completion of this course, accredited by the British Psychological Society, will provide students with either no background, or an unaccredited background in psychology, the route to gain Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). It also provides opportunities to develop specialist knowledge in modules provided for the programme in Psychology for Business.


Assessment will be through a mixture of course work, for example, individual essays or reports, a collaborative writing task with other students, or in some cases an online quiz or a verbal presentation. Additionally, some modules will feature class exams. Supporting student learning is a priority and you'll be carefully guided through each assessment activity, with continuous feedback on your progress.


This is semester 1 module. The aim of CHIP is to develop students' knowledge of the history of psychology, and an understanding of some of the conceptual and contemporary issues that have been and are being debated in the discipline. In Individual Differences students will have the opportunity to develop knowledge and a critical understanding of the study of individual differences, including personality, sex differences, genes & environment, and intelligence as a predictor of health and illness.
