This MSc in Social and Applied Psychology at the University of East Anglia combines research method training with in-depth study of social psychological topics. You’ll study prejudice and intergroup relations, identity, attitudes and decision-making, as well as applied social psychology and critical social psychology. You’ll get to grips with research methodologies for conducting social psychological research, including measuring implicit and explicit attitudes, interviews and focus groups, experimental design and field experiments.
One of the programme’s key strengths is the opportunity it gives you to experience modern psychological research methods first hand, and to undertake bespoke placements to acquire skills specific to your research aims. It will also equip you with the ability to understand research into social behaviour, prepare research proposals, and undertake your own original research, analysis and synthesis – all within one of current psychology’s most fast-moving and fundamental areas. Plus you’ll develop your transferable skills in oral and written communication, and in the analysis of complex data sets.
The programme includes compulsory modules to give you a solid grounding in the subject’s key areas, and optional modules, which you’ll select according to your specific interests. It builds towards a substantial piece of Master’s research, which you will undertake with the supervision of active researchers in the field. Before applying, we encourage you to contact our academics to discuss the topics you’re interested in researching and find out how we can help you explore those areas.
This Master’s degree programme will equip you with advanced training in social psychology research methods. It’s the ideal preparation if you’re interested in studying for a PhD in Social Psychology, or a career with a significant research component, such as in a university, the third sector or within government.
