Courses: MRes / MSc Psychological Research Methods
Course duration: One year full-time, two years part-time
Course start date: September
Organised by: The School of Social Sciences, Nottingham Trent University
This course has an innovative and flexible structure offering you a choice of two possible awards ? an MRes or MSc in Psychological Research Methods ? and the opportunity to tailor your studies in relation to your own research interests and career aspirations.
The MSc award has a primarily taught focus whereas the MRes places a greater accent on independent research; although the innovative course structure means that you don?t? need to decide about your own personal focus until the end of term one.
On either course, students are taught a range of skills necessary to realise their potential as independent researchers in various fields of Psychology or related disciplines. Experts in their field will deepen your understanding of a range of approaches from experimentation to discourse analysis and from observational analysis to structural modelling.
All students will carry out an empirical research project with a research-active member of staff. The course is designed specifically to prepare graduates in Psychology or related disciplines for a PhD, for research-related careers in academic or applied disciplines, or for careers in which data handling and analytic skills are of relevance.
