Developmental Psychology (MSc)
The programme aims to enable students to pursue and develop an advanced study of research methods in psychology and in particular to address contemporary issues of epistemology, data collection, measurement and data analysis. Students also learn to approach problems in research by critical evaluation of existing psychological paradigms and research literature and to apply this to current theoretical or applied issues in psychology.
You should hold, or expect to hold a first or second class (normally upper second class) honours degree in Psychology, conferring eligibility for Graduate Membership of the British Psychological Society.
