About

The Psychology MA at Bangor University is a new course designed to offer advanced study in psychology with an emphasis on both research excellence and critical writing skills. Following two semesters of academic study, students write a stand-alone literature review in an area of psychology that particularly appeals to them.

Overview

This may be an idea or theory that the graduate is already developing, or may be in an area that they become interested in during the course. An academic supervisor will help students to develop their ideas and hone their writing skills, providing support for the literature review. 

Students can choose to follow a general programme or specialise by choosing particular options in semesters one and two.Students wishing to can exit the programme after achieving either a PG Certificate or PG Diploma if they don’t wish to undertake the full MA.

Golden Opportunity

Psychology MA programme offered at the Bangor University offers a golden opportunity to conduct a thorough and exhaustive review of any psychological phenomenon, because psychology concerns itself with the true nature of anything and everything. Students arrive with an abiding interest in a particular subject area or they develop an interest in a subject area from studying other modules. They embark on a search of existing literature in order to describe and explain a phenomenon and by evaluating the available evidence are in a position to draw strong conclusions and make cogent recommendations for future research.

The course is especially recommended to graduates who want to:

  • pursue a career in psychology-related humanities, the health-care professions and social-sciences such as scientific journalism, business management, occupational psychology, marketing and medical care;
  • give their CV an additional boost
  • explore a particular area of psychology in detail through researching and writing a literature review.

Careers and Employability

The course is especially recommended to graduates who want to pursue a career in psychology-related humanities, the health-care professions and social-sciences such as scientific journalism, business management, occupational psychology, marketing and medical care. 

Whatever are the individual’s career aspirations, students receive training and practice during the course of their studies to increase their employment prospects. For example,  students attend a mock, filmed interview in application for a PhD studentship, and their performance is reviewed and assessed and discussed with their tutor. 

Recent graduates have secured a variety of posts, including Programme Coordinator at a prestigious Medical College in USA, Commercial Management Graduate with Coca-Cola, and Marketing Coordinator at Brother Industries.
