The MSc Psychology offered by Plymouth Marjon University explores the key areas of psychology: cognitive, biological, developmental, social, individual differences and psychological research methods, plus you will complete an independent project and research dissertation. An application for course accreditation has been submitted to The British Psychological Society (BPS).
You will develop your understanding of psychology and how you can apply it to issues such as special educational needs and disability, criminality, mental health and dementia and will have a greater understanding of working with and supporting a variety of different people. You will work with the lecturers to elect which everyday issues you wish to explore through teaching and assessments, alongside the core curriculum.
The core curriculum is delivered in lectures with psychology students from a range of undergraduate and postgraduate psychology programmes. This is supplemented by small group teaching and workshops. The assessments not only review your knowledge but offer the opportunity to develop skills for the modern workplace.
What might you become?
Your psychology degree will give you the transferable skills that employers want, whether you are looking at private or public sector careers. It is also a first step towards a career in educational, forensic, clinical, counselling or sports and exercise psychology. It can lead to a career in academia or research through starting postgraduate study and developing to a phD programme.
