Course Summary

Overview
This Masters is a conversion course that is suitable for graduates who have not studied psychology as a first degree. Successful completion provides the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership by the British Psychological Society. It is offered full-time over 1 year or part-time over 3 years.
At the end of the course, you could choose to undertake the further study that is required to become a chartered psychologist. Alternatively, your understanding of psychology will help you in sectors such as advertising, social work, public services, general management and human resources.

Course structure
We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods which include lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials. The research aspects of the course are supported by our thriving research programme in health behaviours and mental health. Our tutors’ specialisms include social psychology and evolutionary psychology.

Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters requires a higher level of independent working.

Assessment methods are a combination of coursework including practical reports, research proposals and presentations.
