  • Open the doors to new career opportunities as a researcher in academic, commercial or public sector settings
  • Work with psychology experts at the cutting edge of their specialist areas
  • Harness our sophisticated psychology research facilities, including a video observation suite and the latest eye tracking equipment

About this course:

Our Master of Research (MRes) programme will develop you into a high-calibre, reflective psychology specialist skilled in delivering evidence-based research. The course is designed for those who wish to enhance their career prospects by taking their research skills to the next level. It differs from more traditional taught masters programmes – such as an MSc –because of its focus on enhancing research methods and skills. Covering both quantitative and qualitative approaches, you will gain a thorough grounding in the methods and processes which underpin original research in psychology and then conduct your own major independent research project under expert supervision.

The course offers an ideal foundation for students who aspire to doctoral studies in the future but may not be able to commit to a PhD at this stage of their career. If, however, you decide to progress to a PhD at Derby, your MRes qualification will count as stage one of your doctoral programme.

You will be allocated a research project supervisor who will oversee your progress and mentor you through your development as an active, engaged researcher. We encourage you to design research projects which relate directly to real-world issues. There may be opportunities to work with some of our partners across the voluntary and charitable sectors to deliver research findings which help them shape their future services. We provide every opportunity for you to tailor your studies to match your current job role, your personal and professional interests, and your career ambitions. 

Your Career

Skills in research, analysis and evaluation are increasingly valued by employers across many different sectors. The thorough understanding of psychological theory, research and methodology you gain from your MRes studies will therefore give you a distinct advantage as you pursue your career.

Your qualification will act as a vital stepping stone, enabling you to apply for:

  • Funded studentships to pursue your research at doctoral level
  • Employment as a researcher or research assistant on major projects in an academic, commercial or public sector setting
  • Employment in organisations which support the development of individuals throughout the lifespan
  • Further professional training and registered routes into professions such as counselling, clinical psychology and educational psychology – for those who have already met Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society.

If you are already working, the MRes can also provide excellent continuing professional development and lifelong learning opportunities, helping you become a more psychologically aware practitioner.

If you are interested in progressing to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at the University of Derby, your MRes qualification will count as stage one of your doctoral programme.

About the course:

If you’re a professional wishing to underpin your work with theory and practical ways forward, or a graduate wishing to specialise in behaviour change or add social science to your skill set, this course is for you.

Our MSc Behaviour Change is the first masters course of its kind. The course will provide you with psychological theories and models so that you can develop a greater understanding of human behaviour and behaviour change. You’ll acquire the knowledge and transferable skills required to critically evaluate and design interventions that provide opportunities for people to change in a variety of practical contexts.

You’ll be taught by an enthusiastic and experienced team of research-active psychologists and ergonomists. We share a passion for promoting applied evidence-based science relevant to the understanding and promotion of behaviour change.

We offer three pathways to a masters award in Behaviour Change:
MSc Behaviour Change (Health and Wellbeing)
MSc Behaviour Change (Occupational Health and Safety)
MSc Behaviour Change (Ergonomics and Human Factors)

You’ll study one module per term (three modules per year). You can do either the full MSc in your chosen pathway over three years, or take a step off award after one year (Postgraduate Certificate) or after two years (Postgraduate Diploma in your chosen pathway).
Although the three pathways share several modules, they are distinctive and tailored to the specific needs of students on each specific pathway. For all module coursework, you’re encouraged to focus on specific contexts that matter to you and your practical experience. At the start of year two, you study a pathway-specific module, and in your masters research project, you’ll identify a research issue related to behaviour change relevant to your chosen pathway.

If you’d like to find out more about either of the three pathways, please contact Dr Sigrid Lipka (email: ; tel: 01332 593052).
