About

Gain valuable professional insights into human behaviour. Develop the same grounding in psychological science as a three-year undergraduate course but at a masters level.

Overview

This Masters is a conversion course that is suitable for graduates who have not studied psychology as a first degree. Successful completion provides the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership by the British Psychological Society. It is offered full-time over 1 year or part-time over 3 years.

At the end of the Psychology programme offered at the University of Sunderland, you could choose to undertake the further study that is required to become a chartered psychologist.
