MSc in Psychology (conversion) Anglia Ruskin University
Enhance your knowledge and skills with our MSc Psychology, which is accredited by the British Psychological Society. Our Master's course is perfect if you have an undergraduate degree, and want to get Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society - or simply learn more about psychology.
Psychology and the exploration of the mind have been discussed for millennia, although it’s still young as a practice. This course will help you develop a scientific understanding of the different perspectives and theoretical approaches within the core areas of psychology, and the relations between them.
You’ll learn how psychology is influenced by many different factors. Through our modules, you’ll see how physiology can influence someone, with the way our bodies react to the chemicals they create, the impact of external influences, like society, how different languages change the way you look at the world and the importance of childhood development.
You’ll also learn how to design research projects, from the first idea through to how to make it work, explore different research methods, and gain the skills to manage a project ethically and professionally. You’ll design and conduct your own research project, and acquire all the skills required by the British Psychological Society (BPS) to register with them as a graduate member (in order to be eligible to register you will need an overall pass mark of 50% in your degree).
Study under the guidance of research-active lecturers, with a passion for psychology and for helping their students reach their potential.
We welcome all students to this course, whether you have studied some psychology in the past or if you are new to this field. If you have studied some psychology in the past, you may have to revisit some topics you have covered.
