Program overview

The master of science degree in experimental psychology builds on the strengths of faculty research and student interests in experimental psychology broadly defined. The program as a whole provides a foundation for further advanced academic study in human factors and/or experimental psychology.

Plan of study

The program includes 30 credit hours of core courses, elective courses, and a thesis. It also offers students two tracks to choose from: experimental psychology and engineering psychology.

The experimental psychology track embraces the application of the scientific method to the study of behavior. Faculty are experts in a variety of fields including addiction, attention, cognition, development, evolutionary psychology, forensic psychology, perception, psychopathology, and social psychology, among others.

The engineering psychology track examines human capabilities to sense, perceive, store, and process information and how these human factors impact interactions with technology. This knowledge is applied to the design, use, and maintenance of human-machine systems. Courses emphasize the role of human behavior and performance in both simple and complex human-machine systems. Students are trained in both research methods of experimental psychology and application of the results to contemporary problems in industry. This track prepares students to function as effective engineering psychologists in industrial, governmental, or consulting organizations.

Electives

Students in the engineering psychology track must select two electives (students should check for course prerequisites or if permission of the instructor is required). Any graduate course at RIT can be taken as an elective, assuming prerequisites are met.

Thesis

Students select a thesis adviser during the first year. Selection of an adviser, thesis topic, and research proposal must be completed in the second semester of the first year of the program. Ongoing research activity is expected through the summer term of the program. At the completion of the thesis, students will publically present their findings and defend their research before a thesis committee.

Curriculum

Experimental psychology, MS degree course sequence differ according to the modules selected, see website for further details on available modules and electives: https://www.rit.edu/programs/experimental-psychology-ms

The Experimental and Medical Biosciences master's programme is designed to provide students with frontline knowledge in biomedicine and related subjects. The aim of the programme is to mix theoretical knowledge with practical skills and is most pronounced in the individual experimental projects done during the first and second year of studies.

The programme is newly designed but has evolved from two previous master’s programmes at Linköping University: Medical Biosciences, and Molecular Genetics and Physiology. Previously existing courses have been further developed and new ones have been created to meet the rapid development within the area. This means that the experiences from previous programmes and the novelty of a newly improved and updated programme are united.

Courses are taught using a multitude of formats, including regular lectures, tutorial groups with Problem-Based Learning methodology, laboratory work and seminar discussions. The laboratory classes use powerful model systems to illustrate modern concepts of medical biology and Problem-Based Learning promotes lifelong learning. After two initial, mandatory courses, the choice of elective courses offers individual study plans and flexibility in creating a profile that increases employability for all students within the area of Life Sciences. Different areas, such as: Cardiovascular biology, Stem cells and Applied Regenerative Medicine, Medical Genetics, and Neurobiology are covered (for a summary of all courses, please see the curriculum), but there is also a special emphasis on scientific reasoning, ethical attitudes, and multidisciplinary collaboration in order to prepare students for an independent and professional future in the field of biomedicine.

Individual projects in which students apply their theoretical and methodological knowledge in practice are key parts of the programme. During the first year, the Project in Experimental and Medical Biosciences will allow students to work with a specific assignment for ten or twenty weeks. During the second year, a one semester Degree Project (Master Thesis) is done. For both projects, chosen in collaboration with the project supervisor, the aim is to define a research goal, carry out the experimental project and produce a written synthesis of the data generated in relation to the current knowledge within the field. The degree project is conducted in a research laboratory, either at Linköping University, or at other Swedish or international universities, in the industry or in the public administration sector.

Double degree programme: An extra feature of the programme is the possibility for a limited number of students to study the second year in Vienna, Austria. Apart from the experience, an additional degree, is earned - Master of Science in Engineering. In contrast to the research oriented environment in Linköping, the studies at the University of Applied Science Technikum Wien within the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine programme, have a strong link to the industry.

MRes in Experimental Physiology and Drug Discovery (Bio-Imaging) is a unique 12 month full-time multi-disciplinary course which aims to give all participants an introduction to the different aspects of biomedical imaging (including hardware and probe development, in vivo and in vitro experimental application, software development and data analysis). In addition, participants will be given training in comparative anatomy, physiology and pharmacology of laboratory animals, they will also obtain a Home Office Personal licence and hands-on experience of a range of in-vivo techniques used in research.


Students will follow already taught courses in Biomedical Imaging, and Experimental Physiology and Drug Discovery. Students will also be taught transferrable skills subjects, such as safety awareness, intellectual property management, time and project management and presentation and communication skills. In addition, students will undertake an individual research project throughout the course and submit a research thesis.


Aims and Objectives

Provide science graduates with:

- an introduction to the different aspects of biomedical imaging
- the ability to perform biomedical imaging, such as probe development or the experimental applicatoin of imaging in vivo
- intensive hands-on in vivo functional biology research training
- the ability to perform the physiological and pharmacological studies in drug development


Content and Structure

Part A: Bio-imaging, animal handling, Home Office training course, comparative anatomy and physiology and drug discovery.

Part B: Six practical modules focused on in vivo research skills (problem solving, e-learning, journal club and lectures).

Part C: 21 week in vivo research project

Career opportunities

The course will provide students with an insight into the principles of drug discovery and translational medical science. Importantly, those students wanting to undertake a PhD in in-vivo science will have gained a Home Office personal licence and be confident in animal handling and techniques. The students will thus be well equipped to make rapid progress in research. Furthermore, having learnt about biomedical imaging from development to application, they will also be better equipped to develop a fully integrative approach to their research problem. The multidisciplinary nature of the course will give students the ability to appreciate the importance of translating the results of scientific and cliical discoveries into potential benefits to healthcare.

Overview

Research degrees in Experimental Physics typically include a mixture of course modules and original research work, which may involve laboratory investigations and computational studies.

Closing date:
Research applications are generally accepted at any time

Course Structure

All research students will be registered onto a Structured Research Programme. Students need to pass a certain number of credits in course modules in addition to successful completion and examination of the thesis. The student’s original research as presented in the thesis is the sole means of assessment for the award of the degree.

MSc by Research students must take a minimum of 10 credits in taught modules (at least 5 in generic/transferable modules and at least 5 in subject specific/advanced specialist modules) from the Structured PhD programme.

Career Options

Research students at the Department of Experimental Physics gain expertise in specialized areas of experimental physics, computational physics or astrophysics during the course of their studies. This means that they are highly sought after by employers in a wide range of high-technology industries such as software engineering, micro-electronics, telecommunication engineering, scientific civil service, medical physics as well as those areas specifically requiring astrophysicists such as space science, satellite communications.

This course introduces you to the principles of experimental pathology applied to oral disease. It is provides a grounding in experimental method for dental graduates who plan to follow either a career in academic dentistry or one of the clinical specialities. It also provides an opportunity for science graduates to learn about oral disease, in preparation for a career in dental research.

We offer you a fundamental training in the principles of laboratory research methods and the range of techniques used to study the behaviour of oral tissues in health and disease.

Programme outline
Your programme will be modular, focused on acquiring laboratory skills and knowledge. The taught modules provide the basic understanding to help with the research component. There is a structured course of seminars with associated practical work, dealing with the structure and behaviour of cells and tissues in health and disease. This core begins with fundamental and general concepts of cell biology and continues with the application of these concepts to a consideration of oral and dental disease. Related disciplines such as oral microbiology and immunology are also covered.

Throughout the programme, emphasis is placed on the evidence upon which the concepts are based and the way in which such evidence is obtained by observation and experiment. You are actively encouraged to take part in the seminars.

Running in parallel with the core programme are several related series of seminars dealing with research methods, statistics and techniques of fundamental importance to experimental pathology such as tissue culture, molecular biological techniques, immunocytochemistry, light and electron microscopy. You will undertake a laboratory-based research project in the final module of the programme, exploring any aspect of oral disease.
