Summary

This Masters is ideal for those who have an undergraduate degree in Psychology or a related discipline and would like to build more knowledge and skills highly valued both in academic research and the clinical professions. Students will be well-equipped should they wish to undertake further professional training in Clinical Psychology, or a related discipline. The MSc is also an ideal platform from which to progress to PhD studies, particularly in Cognitive or Social Neuroscience.

This Masters degree bridges three research and clinical disciplines:

- Cognitive Neuroscience (the study of human brain functions such as memory, perception and language)

- Clinical Neuroscience (the understanding of neurological, psychological or psychiatric illness via their neural and cognitive antecedents)

and Social Neuroscience (the investigation of brain processes that help us communicate, feel, learn and interact with others).
- The major aim of this programme is to provide you with a thorough grounding in the neuroscience that underpins human cognitive brain function, clinical, social and affective interaction, and neuropathology.

Teaching will comprise of seminars, lectures, computing and statistics classes, and supervision of an individual research project. Your learning experience during the programme will be enhanced by an invited speaker’s programme of external experts who work in Clinical, Social or Cognitive neuroscience.

Your learning will be enhanced with optional Clinical internships in the Centre of Wellbeing and Neuroscience and Mind (Hackney) and Research internship in the Cognitive Neuroscience Research Unit (CNRU) and other clinical/research centres at City.
