MSc Social and Applied Psychology
The MSc in Social and Applied Psychology gives you the opportunity to sample a range of modules from our Group Processes and Forensic programmes as well as other modules related to social and applied psychology.
You also gain a thorough grounding in research methods, and conduct a project in an area of social/applied psychology that interests you.
The programme is taught by the School’s outstanding research group in social psychology. Our teaching and research covers the psychology of intergroup behaviour, group decision and performance, attitudes and persuasion, organisational psychology, social cognition, children’s self-concept and social attitudes, and cross-cultural questions, relating social psychological research in these areas to social problems. Course tutors include academics and experts who work in the media, the health service and other applied settings.
