Program Description

MSc in Psychology

University of Roehampton Online

Psychology – the study of mind and behaviour – can enhance a wide range of careers, particularly in today’s complex, globalised environment. As individuals face increasing pressures, professionals with expertise in assisting and motivating people are in demand in businesses and organisations worldwide.

Our online MSc in Psychology programme provides a rigorous and lively study of the science and practice of psychology. Focusing on psychology for the real world – through a unique learning journey that presents core theories in context (self, identity, culture, relationships, workplace) – this fully online programme connects you with experienced international faculty and fellow students. Your assignments will include scientific experiments and interactive activities ranging from simulations of NASA moon tasks to psychometric testing.

Benefiting from the research and teaching expertise of the University’s Department of Psychology, you’ll build your own research skills and investigate in depth a psychology issue that’s relevant to your life.


Advance your career with a Roehampton Online masters programme

Because we believe that learning can only be life-changing when we apply what we learn, we develop masters programmes designed to reflect the most contemporary thinking in the area of study, meaning you’ll learn skills that will be relevant to your career right now, and in the future.

Learning model and programme structure

Each of the Roehampton Online masters programmes has been designed to help you move forward in your life and follows the same basic structure.

Every online programme is made up of seven modules and a research project. Every module lasts 12 weeks. You then have a break of approximately two weeks before resuming your studies. Your research project is much like a dissertation, in which all previous leaning culminates in an academic research paper.

Modules equate to 20 academic credits while your research project carries 40 credits – but you have 26 weeks to complete that part of your programme.

If you already hold a bachelors degree (or equivalent) and have relevant work experience, you may be eligible for full admission into one of our programmes.

Even if you don’t have a suitable bachelors degree, you may still be eligible if you have enough relevant professional experience. If so, you may be conditionally admitted. As long as you pass the first module, you’ll then be granted full admission.
