Course Information


Everywhere we look, there is psychology. It is a fascinating and varied field of study that provides scientific insight into human behaviour and the psyche. Whether you want to pursue a career as a psychologist or just wish to get a better understanding of the mind and its impact on our behaviour and relationships, Canterbury Christ Church University’s BPS-accredited MSc Psychology course provides a flexible pathway to taking the next step and achieving your goal.

The curriculum is a psychology conversion course designed to give students from non-psychology backgrounds a comprehensive foundation in psychological theory and research and to equip them with the academic and practical skills desired by a diverse variety of companies.

After successfully completing the course, you will be eligible for the British Psychological Society’s Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) (BPS). Thus, this degree serves as a springboard for additional postgraduate study in psychology (e.g., to become a Clinical, Educational, or Forensic Psychologist) or postgraduate research (e.g. PhD).
