About

What makes people act the way they do? And how can we use psychological expertise to solve real-life problems? You will tackle these questions and more in the Master’s programme in Psychology.

During the Master’s in Psychology, you will not only examine how people behave but also acquire the knowledge and understanding of psychological theories to analyse behaviour systematically. You will design effective and workable solutions to social issues, using technological applications where possible. These might include computer games that enhance learning skills, online healthcare interventions or iPhone apps to report neighbourhood crime. After your studies, you will have ample opportunity to prove your worth to society as an expert in human behaviour. The position and the sector you work in will partly depend on your Master’s specialization. Psychologists are perhaps most closely associated with the healthcare profession but you might easily find yourself working as a consultant, project manager or coach in business, education, science or the government sector.
