Psychology is all around us. It is a diverse and fascinating subject which offers a scientific insight into human behaviour and the mind. Whether you are aiming to pursue a career as a psychologist or seeking to understand more about the mind and its influence on our behaviour and interactions, the BPS accredited MSc Psychology - Distance Learning programme from Canterbury Christ Church University offers you a flexible approach to reaching that next step and achieving your goal. 

The programme is a psychology conversion course that provides students with non-psychology backgrounds broad grounding in psychological theory and research, and will equip you with the academic and practical skills sought by a wide range of employers.
