Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

From the proliferation of social media to more traditional human encounters, we all take part in hundreds of social interactions every day. But how do they impact on the way we think, feel and behave? Our Social and Applied Psychology Master’s programme combines research methodology training with in-depth study of topics at the cutting-edge of the field. Among other things, it will arm you with the skills to understand research into social behaviour, and it will offer you an optional, tailored research placement, through which you can acquire and hone advanced research skills. This course is ideal if you are a high calibre psychology graduate, or a graduate of a related discipline. Our MSc is an excellent choice if you are preparing for a PhD in social psychology, or if you’re looking to pursue a career with a significant research element, such as at a university, in the third sector, or within government.
