The Psychological Studies MSc programme is designed to introduce graduates from other disciplines to the study of psychology, as a first step to pursuing a career in this area. Psychologists study the full range of influences that affect behaviour, from the biological to the social. They also study how we perceive our environment; how we think, learn and remember; how we communicate and interact with others; how we differ from one another in personality and abilities; and how all these change and develop throughout our lifetimes.
The MSc Psychological Studies will introduce you to the study of psychology and provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue a career in psychology or in other areas where a scientific understanding of human behaviour is important.
Completion of this conversion programme could act as the first step to a professional career in psychology and will open up various options to you. Completion of a further 1 year masters programme in a specialist area such as health psychology or occupational psychology will enable you to pursue these specialist career paths. Alternatively, you may wish to use the conversion qualification as means to gain a BPS accredited qualification or as the basis for a career in the many areas where a knowledge of human behaviour is beneficial. You may be interested in pursuing a research career in psychology and may choose to go on to complete an MRes in Psychology as the first step to a PhD.
