Overview The MSc in Research Methods with Psychology provides training in psychological research methods, including research design, statistical methods, and relevant software, but also offers a range of supplementary options from several other psychology Masters programmes. The course comprises seminars, lectures, computing and statistics classes, and an individual research project/dissertation.The programme draws on our other MSc programmes, especially the MSc in Behavioural Economics (particularly for generalized linear model /regression training, undertaken using R software), the MSc in Clinical, Social & Cognitive Neuroscience (particularly for programming/ computational modelling training, undertaken using Matlab software) and our MSc Research methods programme (particularly for qualitative methods training, e.g. phenomenological, narrative and discourse approaches). Optional modules introduce psychological content with a less methodological focus in order to provide a broader context for the methods that are being taught. They come from the programmes mentioned above and also our MSc in Organisational Psychology.
