About the MSc programme

MSc Social and Cultural Psychology explores the ways in which culture and society shape how people think, behave and relate to each other - uncovering the relationship between human cultures and cognition. It draws on theories, concepts and methods of social and cultural psychology to understand how societies think, how communities develop a sense of identity and how they represent controversial and important issues affecting local and global public spheres.

The MSc aims to give you a grounded understanding of theoretical and applied issues as well as a sophisticated training in a broad range of research methods. It will advance your knowledge and professional competence in the area of social and cultural psychology, and enhance your independent thinking and analytical skills.

The programme is unique in its combination of social and cultural approaches to psychology and is one of the world's leading programmes in this field. During the course of the programme, you will be required to take two compulsory courses (one theoretical and one methodological), and you will select options to the value of one unit from a wide range of courses. The Department offers an extensive choice of specialist courses, addressing a variety of theoretical and applied issues in social and cultural psychology and in the social sciences as a whole. In addition, you will complete a research dissertation of 10,000 words.

This programme is based in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science. It is an interdisciplinary faculty and research team, with research areas spanning across social psychology to behavioural economics, political psychology to organisational culture, consumer behaviour to public engagement, and community development to global health, happiness and well-being. The Department's research focuses on real world issues, thus their research is both theoretically well-informed, and produces results that impact policy, business, and society at large.
