The Psychology course from Maynooth University is intended for students who wish to pursue a professional career in psychology, who have already studied at least 60 credits of psychology in their undergraduate degree, but who do not currently hold an undergraduate qualification that confers eligibility for Graduate Membership of the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) or Graduate Basis for Registration with the British Psychological Society.
Emphasis is on psychological research methods and analytic techniques, professional ethics, and applied research experience.
As the MSc Psychology is a pre-professional qualification, for careers in professional psychology disciplines (e.g. clinical psychology, educational psychology, occupational psychology, counselling psychology) further training at Masters or doctoral level is required. Graduates who do not wish to pursue professional psychology careers may consider a variety of career and employment options including roles in advertising, the civil service, human resources, and recruitment consultancy. This course is accredited by the Psychological Society of Ireland.
