Choose Kingston's Psychology MSc
The course is aimed at:
- UK graduates of programmes other than Psychology who wish to qualify for the Graduate Basis for Chartered membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS), and who are looking for a masters-level qualification. It will therefore appeal to students who have insufficient credits in psychology from their first degree to meet this criterion to achieve GBC.
- Overseas students (non-UK) who are looking for a masters-level programme in general psychology that spans the range of subdisciplines that comprise contemporary psychology, and which is accredited by the BPS.
What will you study?
The course covers all of the key subdisciplines of psychology, and will provide extensive training in research skills related to psychology. In addition to providing a broad (yet detailed) overview of the subject, it will promote critical appraisal in relation to psychological models, theories and methodologies. You will conduct practical research exercises, and will produce a substantial research-based dissertation in an area of psychology that you choose (subject to availability).
