About

Psychological Research Methods focuses on developing the tools and skills used at the cutting edge of research in the psychological sciences. This course provides ESRC-accredited research training for graduates whose first degree contains a significant component of psychology.

The course consists of taught modules followed by an independent project supervised by a member of staff and resulting in an MSc dissertation.

It is especially suited to applicants who are considering doing a PhD, or wish to develop their research skills in preparation for further professional training (e.g. Clinical, Forensic, Educational,

Health, Occupational Psychology), or who require additional training in psychological research methods to apply to their work environment.
