Course content

The MSc in Psychology Research Methods is part of the University of Nottingham's ESRC Doctorate Training Centre, one of only 21 such centres in the UK

The course is approved by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as the first part of a ‘1+3’ postgraduate training programme leading eventually to a PhD.

This course provides a broad education in psychological research methods. Specifically, it:

-Provides students with an understand of the range of research methods, both qualitative and quantitative, that are used in psychological research
-Helps students to critically evaluate psychological research methods and various forms of data used in psychological research
-Provides the opportunity to focus on the student's own research interests
-Provides the opportunity to develop skills in literature searching and reviewing
-Examines the professional skills required of an advanced researcher
-Provides practical training in doing psychology-related research
The MSc in Psychology Research methods is based on two taught semesters of full-time study, from late September to mid June, plus the summer period, ending in September, when an empirical research project is undertaken. The course can also be based on two years of part-time study.

Part-time students on this course are taught alongside full-time students and the choice of modules (and therefore the timetable) is flexible and a matter for agreement between student and course director. In all cases, part-time students can access a wide range of teaching and learning facilities remotely via the student portal.
