The University of Bolton MSc in Psychology focuses on the increasingly popular and influential field of Positive Psychology. The study of Positive Psychology enables individuals, families, companies and communities to thrive and cultivate the best within themselves, and thus improve their experiences of work, leisure time and relationships. Positive Psychology has an essential role to play today, in the midst of the stress and uncertainty of the current pandemic.
The field and study of psychology is vast, and can lead to a variety of rewarding career options for degree holders after graduation. An MSc in Psychology is very attractive to employers because graduates of postgraduate psychology programmes are excellent communicators - they possess a good deal of knowledge about people’s behaviour and motivation, how good relationships are formed and about effective teamwork – and at the same time they have a scientific mind and advanced research expertise. Such knowledge and skills are central to many jobs these days.
Graduates of the MSc in Psychology of the University of Bolton can apply the skills learnt on this MSc programme in mental health settings, but also in teaching and education, humanitarian and community initiatives, human resources departments, career coaching, leadership and business environments. This one-year full-time Masters programme involves the comprehensive study of selected areas in psychology at an advanced level, including the latest research and practice in Positive Psychology and contemporary research methods in Psychology.
Many students who have completed an undergraduate degree in a non-psychology field might find that they would like to switch to psychology for graduate school. Is this possible? Yes! Graduates from other “helping” fields – for example teachers, human resources specialists, sociology graduates and social workers - are welcome to apply and can be accepted after a successful interview with the programme leader. They can go on to lead fulfilling and successful careers as specialists in Positive Psychology.
