Course content

The MA in Psychology offers an excellent opportunity to gain insight and in-depth knowledge of contemporary topics in Psychology.

This course offers a unique mix of modules that, unlike a more typical MSc, focuses on integrating knowledge in Psychology and communicating those ideas to the public. The course also provides students with a range of transferable skills that are needed to succeed in a wide range of research-knowledge positions. The course is particularly aimed at students who do not want to actively conduct lab-based research, and would prefer to focus on extending their understanding of Psychology and synthesizing current knowledge in new and meaningful ways. Students have the opportunity to build in-depth knowledge in at least two areas of contemporary Psychology, to develop their critical analysis skills, and to hone their science writing and communication skills.

The course is run by one of the largest and most active Psychology departments in Britain with an excellent reputation for both teaching and research.
