Applications of Psychology

This programme provides students with the opportunity to study at postgraduate level in several areas of applied psychology, but with a particular emphasis on the clinical and health arena. Students will have the opportunity to formulate relevant research questions and design appropriate methodologies to address them, in the light of relevant practical constraints and ethical concerns. Students will further have the opportunity to reflect on the extent to which background and culture impact upon psychology-related work, and consider their own background and experiences. The programme is ideal for applicants who are interested in the applications of psychology, thus the programme will provide knowledge in key aspects of psychology. This MSc does not require students to have Graduate Basis of Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society.

Entry requirements

A minimum of a 2nd Class Honours degree in a relevant, cognate discipline. Potential applications may also be considered if they have other qualifications or experience that demonstrate the possession of the required knowledge and skills.

Course modules

There are 6 taught modules, taught sequentially over 2 years: Research methods in practice; adult psychopathology; health psychology in action; professional issues, ethics and diversity; neuropsychological assessment; CBT with applied psychology. These modules may be subject to change. Students have 2 academic years to complete the dissertation: In year 2, with study alongside the remaining taught modules; in year 3, after completing the taught modules.

Assessment methods

Throughout the course students develop the skills to successfully disseminate information to both specialist and non-specialist audiences; students are assessed using a range of techniques such as online quizzes, essays, journal article presentations, critiques, and proposals.
