Are you looking to develop a career in psychology or further your understanding of psychology; the scientific study of people, the mind and behavior?

This MSc conversion course in Applied Psychology, delivered via distance learning, is designed to allow students who do not hold a psychology undergraduate degree to develop the wide range of subject-specific and generic skills required to pursue a career as a professional psychologist in practice or academia.

Visit the website: http://www.rgu.ac.uk/social-work-and-social-sciences/study-options/distance-and-flexible-learning/applied-psychology-course

Course detail

Masters degrees prepare you for entering a professional area, whether this is as a chartered psychologist, academic research (e.g. PhD study) or elsewhere. The MSc will train you to apply your thinking to examine the theories and practices that make up the professional knowledge in Psychology.

You will build on these practices to become, not only an independent researcher. Rather than just working within the key issues or debates in Psychology, you will be expected to examine the edges and boundaries of Psychology and understand how knowledge is constructed.

Modules

You will study core modules in:

• Biological Psychology
• Cognitive Psychology
• Developmental Psychology
• Individual Differences
• Social Psychology
• Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology
• Research Methods

The flexible nature of the course also allows you to study an elective module in an applied area of your choice. Whilst the final research project, written up as a dissertation, enables you to explore psychological questions in a real-world context that are relevant to your interests, experiences and future career ambitions. All classes and activities will be done online and in your own time with the exception of a two hour weekly online workshop. The precise timing of the workshop will be negotiated with the student co-hort upon course commencement.

The modules will focus on Applied Psychology; using knowledge of psychology to understand real-world problems and create changes in areas such as education, the workplace, mental health and psychological well-being, counselling, physical health and illness, behaviour change, forensic and legal settings, sport and exercise, and social problems such as prejudice and discrimination.

Format

You will experience a supportive and structured learning experience, with access to a comprehensive online library of psychology resources delivered via the University's virtual learning environment CampusMoodle and plenty of opportunity to interact with tutors and other students. All classes and activities will be done online and in your own time with the exception of fortnightly online workshops.

Learning will involve online lectures, interactive discussion forums and virtual classroom sessions.

You will also receive one-to-one support from a specialist supervisor when you begin your empirical research project.

Assessment

Assessment methods include written coursework in the form of essays and reports, empirical research projects and a range of online activities.

Placements and accreditation

This course is accredited by The British Psychological Society.

Careers

Successful completion of the MSc will enable students to pursue further training as a HCPC-registered and/or Chartered Psychologist in a range of areas such as:

• Clinical Psychology
• Counselling Psychology
• Educational Psychology
• Forensic Psychology
• Occupational Psychology
• Health Psychology
• Sport and Exercise Psychology
• Teaching and Research in Psychology

On graduation students will be equipped with a broad range of soft skills including the ability to: solve problems and reason scientifically; make critical judgements and evaluations; demonstrate ethical awareness and sensitivity to contextual and interpersonal factors; communicate and collaborate successfully. Given the distance learning nature of the course, students will also be adaptive and responsible in order to be effective independent learners. Such soft skills are highly valued by employers for jobs across a wide range of occupations that involve work with people, and will prove invaluable for those applying for further training as a HPC-registered and/or Chartered Psychologist.

Collaborative learning

The MSc in International Management & Law is designed to be a collaborative learning experience. It's a partnership between academic staff and students, and between students from different cultural backgrounds. Working together allows those involved to build upon their collective understanding in interrogating, at an advanced level, the global issues impacting organisations.

Course content

Semester 1
The MSc in International Management & Law begins with an introduction to the Management Development Programme. During this introduction, it's impressed on you that you're responsible for developing both your knowledge and skills and that you should approach your studies as active learners. This introduction is complemented by an Integrated Skills Workshop which focuses on your personal approach to learning and managing themselves.

The core Law class in the first semester is the Law of International Business. It introduces you to the concepts underpinning the regulation of businesses. It will explain the different types of business entities and introduce you to company and corporate law concepts.

In this semester the core International Management class is Managing Across Cultures. This class will help you develop an awareness, knowledge and understanding of the importance of the often overlooked 'soft skills' of management, particularly as concerns cross-cultural variations and their impact on the practices and processes of management. It'll examine the main concepts currently employed to understand the complexity presented to managers in their process of managing people across national and cultural borders, addressing the issues of the impact of culture on management structures and processes. It will then provide understanding of the role which cross-cultural management can play in achieving competitive advantage in international business.

Semester 2
The programme then leads into two core classes. The first is in International Management, namely Global Business Environment. This class is designed to inspire you with the platform of knowledge and understanding on the economic, institutional and socio-cultural contexts which form the background to International Management.

The core Law class is Comparative Law of Obligations. This will consider obligations law in the context of different constitutional arrangements around the world. It will include material on delict/torts, contract and restitution in countries including the UK, Australia, Canada, the EU, the USA and China and also some material on the law of obligations in the Islamic tradition.

Upon completion of the compulsory classes and towards the end of the taught programme, you choose elective classes, allowing you to explore a range of topics. Students enrolled on the MSc in International Management & Law will be able to choose classes from a shared pool of international, general management and law topics available.

Semester 3
The project class rounds off the programme in the third and final semester. This provides you with an opportunity to explore at length and in depth some aspects of theory or methods, knowledge or skills introduced on the taught element of the programme. The project is supported by a class in project methodology. At this stage of the programme you may be interested in aligning career aspirations with project work.

Learning & teaching

Modes of learning include lectures, seminars, workshops, case studies, expert guest lecturers, self-study exercises, project work, and individual study and research. Individual class specifications detail the objectives, learning outcomes and content for each core module of the programme, with a breakdown of teaching methods and forms of assessments used.

There's a strong theme throughout the core classes of ongoing transferable skills development, including team-work, problem-solving, data handling and analytical skills, evaluation skills and written and oral communication. Particularly, the consulting in practice class provides you with professional, highly-transferable skills including leadership, project management, decision-making and negotiation.

Assessment

All core classes in the programme include coursework as an element of final assessment. Other methods of assessment are also used, appropriate to the focus of the class, including group and individual project work, presentations and online assessed exercises. Relative weighting of coursework and other assessment methods vary from class to class.

The dissertation or project will be assessed by in-depth project evaluation reports, supervisor feedback reports and a critical reflection of professional and personal skills.

Who is it for?

Whether you are a freelancer, mid-career professional, business owner or entrepreneur, the Ashridge Executive MBA for the Creative Industries is a strategic programme for professionals wishing to lead, establish or grow their role and their business in the fast-paced, changing environment of the creative industries. To apply, you must have a minimum of 3 years’ work experience plus a Bachelor degree, or a minimum of 5 years’ work experience without a degree. English must be at IELTS 7.0 level or equivalent for those for whom English is not their first language.

What will you learn?

This is a general MBA including all the main subjects of strategic management: marketing, finance, operations, leadership, strategy, global management, sustainability, economics and innovation. However, resources for each subject are tailored to ensure they are relevant to the creative industries. In addition, you can use your own organization as the basis for your learning and your assignments, to ensure direct relevance and practical application while you study. There are no exams, just assignments and a final business-based masters project, so your organization may even benefit from free consultancy! This is of particular value if you are looking for company sponsorship for your studies. The four residential weeks will include development of personal and leadership skills which are more effective when practiced face-to-face. While studying online, you will have the opportunity to interact with your tutor and your peers through discussion forums, privately and in the virtual classroom.

Flexibility and innovation

This is an online MBA that can be studied in your own time to fit around busy work schedules, especially important in the creative industries. The online study planner will outline the study schedule, key deadlines and dates for online interactive sessions. You will then be able to draw on the extensive online resources, including state-of-the-art video material from Atticus Education and access to the MBA Learning Zone and Virtual Ashridge. Here you will find numerous databases of thousands of articles, industry journals, company reports, and e-books which are all freely available to support your studies. Although focused around distance learning, you will be expected to attend four residential weeks, two per year, to gain the key soft skills required to support the academic elements of the MBA.
