It’s a complex field that touches almost every aspect of human life – and like any rich, nuanced subject, it needs to be approached from different perspectives. This is where you come in. 

For example, companies and government bodies are showing a growing interest in predicting and influencing the behaviour of collaborators, competitors, and the public. It’s essential that people in such positions of power have experts who can train and advise them on ethical means of doing so. 

Alternatively, your interests may lie in being able to help people with their wellbeing. The exacerbation of mental health challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic means that more and more individuals require support from qualified professionals. 

Why this MSc in Psychology?

Through taking this Psychology (Distance Learning) course from the University of Portsmouth , you’ll learn how to study a person’s mind and behaviour by examining their cultural environment, upbringing, mental processes, and personality.  

Each of these perspectives use a variety of research methods, some being scientific and objective, and others being experiential and subjective. You’ll gain hands on experience with the most relevant and influential of these, and further your skills by conducting your own research studies as well. 

You’ll be supported by our distinguished Psychology Department, which follows a philosophy of research-led teaching. The content you receive will have been designed by research-active members of staff who are working at the forefront of their fields, meaning you can look forward to receiving a truly exceptional education.
