The programme provides detailed coverage of all core aspects of psychology: developmental, social, cognitive, biological and neuropsychology, and individual differences. It also includes conceptual and theoretical perspectives in psychology and psychological research methods.

You will complete a research project on an area of mental health with either adults or children and young people.

This programme is unique in two respects. It is the only British Psychological Society accredited MSc conversion programme that focuses on the psychology of mental health. This focus is particularly suited to those who wish to pursue a career in a caring profession such as clinical psychology. It is also unique in being delivered jointly by a staff team offering unrivalled expertise in both psychological science and clinical psychology.

Graduates will be eligible to register with the British Psychological Society through graduate basis for chartered membership (GBC). This will create career opportunities where a psychology degree is advantageous or essential. It also creates opportunities for advanced professional training in psychology (e.g. Clinical Psychology or Educational Psychology), which normally require an undergraduate degree in psychology.

You will also develop a range of sophisticated psychological research skills that will open career opportunities in research, including research assistant posts and doctoral research training.
