About Research Methods in...
Masters degrees in Research Methods in Psychology explore different approaches to Psychological research, and compare their effectiveness in different contexts.
Related subjects include Qualitative Psychology, Quantitative Psychology and Psychological Research Methods. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Mathematics, Social Science or Psychology.
Psychological research methods vary greatly depending on the information they’re being used to gather. Courses in this field encourage you to explore not only the different kinds of research that professionals undertake, but also to understand the contexts within which they’re used. Within this, you’ll determine why certain methods are deemed appropriate for different contexts, and how these have developed over time.
Depending on your interests, you may specialise in fine-tuning any number of research approaches, from qualitative, descriptive and correlational techniques through to quantitative, statistical and modelling methodologies.
With a Masters in this field, it’s likely that you’ll go on to further research, exploring routes either in academia, or within government agencies and large private organisations. For example, you may help companies conduct their own research, whether it be medical, consumer or otherwise.
