Masters degrees in Quantitative Psychology equip postgraduates with the skills to measure, model and statistically analyse psychological processes, often on a large scale.
Related subjects include Experimental Psychology, Applied Psychology and Research Methods in Psychology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Mathematics, Computer Science or Psychology.
Quantitative psychology is interested in research design and methodology, particularly in methods for psychometrics. On one of these courses, you’ll typically analyse and develop a variety of research methods to measure psychological function, and model the statistical data you gain from them.
Techniques are often drawn from fields such as Mathematics, Computer Science and Social Science, making learning approaches highly interdisciplinary in nature. The main areas of research include methods for testing human intelligence, modelling emotional response and predicting other psychological functions to determine how people will react in different situations. For example, this could include comparing how people respond when on their own to when they’re in a group.
You might apply expertise in this subject to a range of professional roles, from helping educational facilities to design appropriate assessment methods, to consulting research on the best survey techniques.
