About Cognitive Psychology
Masters degrees in Cognitive Psychology involve advanced study of the mental mechanisms and processes associated with perception, learning, language, memory and emotions.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Cognitive Rehabilitation and Cognitive Development & Disorders. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Psychology subject.
Courses in this field train you in the qualitative and quantitative approaches needed to assess how humans understand the world around them. This includes analysing the faculties involved with tasks such as problem solving, creativity and rational thinking, as well as the factors that influence them.
For example, you might explore how external factors change human cognitive performance, including substance abuse and environmental / social factors. Or, you might examine how mood impacts our perceptions. On the other hand, you might investigate how mental activity affects the body, such as anxiety and stress.
Another component of these programmes could be developmental study, including how the mind changes with age. You may also investigate processes such as false memory, particularly in terms of cognitive impairments such as dementia.
Expertise in this field can lead to careers in psychological assessment and therapy within a clinical, healthcare or social care context.
