Psychology

Our Psychology (MRes) is a research-focused course providing an in-depth theoretical understanding, factual knowledge base and practical experience of key research paradigms, research designs and statistical techniques used in psychology and, more broadly, in the social sciences. You will receive extensive training in: quantitative methods: path analysis, hierarchical regression analysis, multi-level modelling, signal detection analysis and non-linear regression models; qualitative methods: focus groups, interviewing skills, IPA, thematic analysis, grounded theory, discourse analysis and conversation analysis. You will also receive training in meta-analytical techniques, experience sampling, physiological recording methods, eye-tracking and working with children. Our MRes focuses on various forms of dissemination activity including: writing academic papers; preparing posters; writing summaries; data presentation; collaborating and communicating with stakeholders (e.g. patients, health professionals, teachers, NHS managers); writing and communicating with the public and professional psychologists. Many of our students have found that the methodology training has been invaluable for pursuing a broad variety of careers.
