Course content

This MSc in Social Neuroscience gives you the opportunity to develop an advanced knowledge of how the brain responds to, and makes sense of the social world, as well as confidence in the use of neuroscientific research skills (for instance, electrophysiology and eye-tracker experiments).

What the course offers

Humans’ social nature is based on neural, hormonal, and molecular structures and networks that we have started to understand only relatively recently. This includes studying the processes behind the sensation and perception of social stimuli, and the behaviours associated with social interactions. This highly progressive Master’s programme is designed to give you excellent learning opportunities in Social Neuroscience – supported by our department’s enthusiastic, supportive teaching staff and a technology-enriched learning environment.

You’ll have the chance to explore issues from a variety of perspectives, underpinned by a research-informed knowledge base, as you develop an in-depth knowledge of Social Neuroscience. You’ll also be encouraged to refine and enhance your critical evaluation and reflection skills.

As you progress, you’ll have the opportunity to enhance your research skills, to help you conceptualise, design and implement a substantial piece of independent research. This, in turn, offers you a unique opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of new ideas and approaches in Social Neuroscience.

Successfully completing this course will open up a wide range of opportunities for employment, or further study at doctorate level.

Course Highlights:

  • We’ll support you as you develop an in-depth and advanced knowledge of Social Neuroscience, both in terms of theory and evidence.
  • You’ll have ongoing opportunities to develop highly sought-after skills in critical evaluation and reflection in relation to Social Neuroscience theories and research techniques.
  • Focused research training is designed to support and guide you in conceptualising, designing and implementing independent research in Social Neuroscience.
  • We work hard to create a learning environment that offers innovative methods of teaching and assessment, and access to high-specification facilities such as our observation and psychophysiology laboratories, Neuroscan software and hardware, and Stim3 software.
  • The programme is designed to enhance your employability in the sector, or help you progress to further studies in psychology.

Key Features:

  • Enthusiastic, dedicated and supportive teaching makes this an engaging and exciting postgraduate opportunity.
  • The course curriculum explores issues from a balanced range of perspectives, and is supported by a research-informed knowledge base.
  • This is an exciting programme of study with a strong emphasis on research and critical enquiry.
  • Learning and teaching is student-centred and involves small group sessions and one-to-one tutorials. This is supported and enhanced by the University’s virtual learning environment.
  • The programme includes a lab-based work experience module that gives you access to live research projects within the School of Education and Psychology.
