MSc Applied Psychology with Professional Experience (HLST141)
This course runs in September only.
This programme is for students who have previously studied psychology and want to further their knowledge and understanding of an applied area of psychology.
Students will study general psychology at an advanced level and specialise in their choice of, educational and child psychology, counselling and clinical psychology or forensic psychology.
You will be given the opportunity to develop skills beneficial to working in an applied psychology practice or research setting, through the completion of work experience. You will be able to tailor your learning to a particular field of psychology and study advanced psychological practices in your chosen specialism.
The MBA Health Care Management with Professional Experience, is an extended full-time Masters programme with a substantive professional experience component. Within the professional experience modules, students have the option of undertaking an internship with a host organisation or, alternatively, campus-based professional experience.
Internships are subject to a competitive application and selection process and the host organisation may include the University.Internships may be paid or unpaid, and this will depend on what is being offered and agreed with the host organisation. Students who do not wish to undertake an internship or are not successful in securing an internship will undertake campus-based professional experience, which will deliver similar learning outcomes through supervised projects and activities designed to offer students the opportunity to integrate theory with an understanding of professional practice.WHAT WILL I LEARN?
