MSc Psychology programme at Maynooth University is designed to provide a pre-professional qualification equivalent to a bachelor degree in psychology and, as such, offers a conversion route for graduates who hold an honours degree in Psychological Studies or equivalent. 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.
Psychological Society of Ireland accreditation for this course is pending, and is expected to be achieved in 2020.
