Psychology

We're committed to developing our postgraduates into skilled researchers who can conduct rigorous research using a variety of methodologies and methods. Supervision can be offered in any of the areas of departmental activity. During your first year you may take a range of taught modules including research design and analysis, methodology, theoretical issues, and statistics; requirements will vary depending on any postgraduate research training you have already undertaken. You will attend and contribute to research seminars, and through departmental and Goldsmiths-wide modules you are also encouraged to develop practical skills such as public speaking, poster preparation, scientific writing, and how to deal with the media. You meet regularly with your supervisor at every stage, and develop a structured approach to designing, executing, analysing and writing up your research. You will have access to the Department of Psychology's range of laboratories, testing rooms and research equipment. You have an annual allowance to contribute towards your research expenses and participation in at least one national or international conference.
