Masters study type: Full time Masters study type: Part time

Cognitive psychology and neuropsychology bring together a range of different theoretical frameworks. Cognitive psychological, neuropsychological, neurobiological and computer science approaches can be combined in order to understand how the human mind/brain solves a variety of complex problems, such as recognising objects, remembering previous experiences, reading, speaking and reasoning.

The MSc programme will provide an overview and critical evaluation of the major issues, investigative strategies, and empirical findings of recent attempts to integrate these different approaches to 'brain cognition'. We believe Kent offers a distinctive and attractive programme.

The MSc will be composed of 3 compulsory modules and 2 option modules. The compulsory modules are as follows:

1 Advanced Statistics and Methodology
2 Current Issues in Cognitive Psychology and Neuropsychology
3 Dissertation

Module 2 involves a seminar schedule integrated with lectures from internal speakers and external speakers from different universities in the UK and Europe.

Options will include:

• Advanced Cognitive (Neuroscience) Methods in Practice
• Advanced Topics in Cognition in Action
• Advanced Topics in Cognitive Development
• Advanced Topics in Developmental Psychopathology
• Cognitive Neural Networks
• The Psychology of Eyewitness Testimony

The programme mainly involves lecture and seminar based teaching. In addition, particular option units (such as computational modelling) require 'hands-on' experience and learning of particular skills. Staff contact time is eight hours per week. You are expected to study for 1,800 hours over 45 weeks.
