As human beings, a deeper understanding of psychology – the science of people and behaviour – can give us a better insight into ourselves and how we interact with others, both professionally and personally.

The MSc in Psychology programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)1, one of the few online programmes to hold this accolade. This independent mark of quality confirms you’ll earn a qualification that meets professional standards.

This online masters programme has a strong focus on balancing both personal and professional development. Through a unique learning journey that presents core theories in context (self, identity, culture, relationships, workplace), you’ll explore concepts and ideas that will give you a new perspective on yourself and how you view the world.

By enhancing your understanding of different psychological disciplines in a global, real-world context, you’ll acquire skills and knowledge that can help bring immediate benefits to your current role (whatever industry you might work in), or that provide a strong platform for further career success.

When you graduate, you’ll be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the BPS which will allow you to access further professional training opportunities in psychology.2
