The School of Psychology within the College of Life Sciences & Medicine at the University of Aberdeen offers a one year full-time taught ESRC-recognised masters in research methods (MRes) course.
The MRes consists of several different components. Most of these are run in the Psychology Department. Some activities and events, however, are run by the School in collaboration with other departments, both within the University and elsewhere.
The School of Psychology at Aberdeen is highly active in research. Academic staff are involved in a wide range of research areas. Consequently, we can provide a wide range of skills, enabling the School to create a varied and stimulating teaching environment.
The MRes degree programme is designed to provide you with a thorough grounding in the skills required for a career in psychological research. You will gain an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of particular theoretical perspectives, research methods, experimental designs and statistical procedures. During the course of conducting your own research project, you will develop the ability to critically assess your own data and hypotheses. By the end of the course, you will have acquired expertise in advanced research design and methodology; in addition, you will have equipped yourself with transferable, employment-related skills such as project management, presentation skills and interview preparation.
