What will I learn?

This Masters in Research Methods of Psychological Science will provide you with both theoretical instruction and practical experience in the methods appropriate for scientific research in psychology. This MSc complies with requirements for the PhD research training programme of the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) and can either be the first year of a ‘1+3’ funding package or qualify you for future ‘+3’ funding.

Students will benefit from innovative assessment, including portfolio of professional skills, peer review and writing up a research project in the format of a journal article. They will also benefit from access to the resources of the University’s Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi), including a 3 Tesla fMRI scanner, MEG system, two TMS labs, and several EEG labs, including fMRI compatible systems. Dedicated motion capture suites record precise 3D body movements and facial animation sequences. Eye movements can be followed remotely using our SR Research EyeLink systems.
