Advanced Applied Psychology

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this course will enable you to gain a scientific understanding of the mind, brain, behaviour and experience. The course focuses on psychological investigation of everyday behaviour and has a strong focus on applying core psychological theory to understand why people think act and feel the way that they do. Students will be encouraged to analyse psychological theory and methods of investigation throughout the degree. Our four-year MSci Advanced Applied Psychology degree course is designed for students considering a career in a psychology-related field, and for students wishing to progress to study Psychology at Doctoral level. Our course enables you to gain in-depth scientific understanding of the psychological principles and theories underlying people’s everyday experience and behaviour, and then investigate those psychological principles and theories using advanced research methods (i.e., beyond the research methods taught at undergraduate level) in contexts related to those in which professional psychologists work. The course is a practical focus to the application of psychology to real world situations. The programme is designed to take students from an analysis of everyday functions and attendant important behaviours, through core discipline knowledge of theory and empirical findings relevant to those behaviours and others, to an appreciation and understanding of contexts in which psychology can be applied, and professional psychologists work. A questioning approach to behaviour is thus encouraged from year one. Practical and laboratory experience and skills development is embedded within this process, as is practical experience of research participation, thus linking the development of research and analytic skills to explaining behaviours relevant to everyday functioning and experiences. Our curriculum features core subjects such as Developmental Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Biological Psychology, Social Psychology, Research Methods for Psychology, Individual Differences, and Cognitive Psychology. We also offer innovative modules such as Understanding Relationships, Positive Psychology, Being Employed, Psychology and Social Issues, Professional Skills In Psychology, Work And Organisations. Staff with experience in a range of disciplines who are highly qualified and enthusiastic about their work. A supportive learning environment. An MSci in Advanced Applied Psychology, with status of the Graduate Basis for Registration (GBR) with the BPS, provides a foundation for you to progress to specialist areas of psychology, and subsequent status as a Chartered Psychologist.
