Summary

The ambition of this course is to provide an interface between theory and practice, understanding and skills, by giving a thorough grounding in the psychology underpinning persuasion in the context of how it is applied - and how it might be applied more radically - in the communications industry. The course combines small-group ‘knowledge-exchange’ with innovative student-led teaching, built around: outstanding expertise in cognitive, developmental, social and neuropsychological aspects of advertising, perspectives and contributions from both relevant academic researchers and seasoned advertising practitioners, original commercially-oriented research in groups, and hands-on experience within an optional commercial/third sector work placement.
