Course details

Drawing on Plymouth's existing British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited programmes, you’ll gain access to the curriculum essential for obtaining GBC, a critical step in becoming a chartered psychologist. The programme includes a number of opportunities for advanced study. You’ll learn through an exciting blend of lectures and regular interaction with staff and fellow students, as well as through independent reading and research. You’re challenged to investigate classic and contemporary issues in the field of psychology at an intensive and analytical level. A unique feature of this MSc is its incorporation of student-directed seminar groups, which employ various learning approaches, for example you may take part in small group discussions where you explore and critically analyse the literature relevant to a current issue of practical significance. You’ll develop and carry out an independent research project under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
