One-year Postgraduate Certificate in Psychology also added to online portfolio

Liverpool – 20 October, 2014 – The University of Liverpool's School of Psychology has announced the launch of fully online MSc programmes in Psychology, Mental Health Psychology and Organisational and Business Psychology. All three programmes feature a cross-cultural international approach that allows students to learn collaboratively with other working professionals from across the world, share best practices and gain knowledge they can apply immediately.

“Our new psychology programmes combine cutting-edge research and notable contributions from leading academics and practitioners in the field, using real-life case studies to create an interactive and highly stimulating online experience for students," said Dr Alex Forsythe, Director of Studies for the online psychology programmes at the University of Liverpool. "Not only do students benefit from the latest research-led teaching, but graduates of the programmes can use their degree as a stepping stone for professional advancement and doctoral research.”

The new University of Liverpool online psychology programmes are:

  • MSc in Psychology, which provides students with a solid foundation in psychology without the requirement for an undergraduate degree in psychology. Students can personalise their degree to meet their needs by selecting from a range of electives in mental health psychology or organisational and business psychology.
  • MSc in Mental Health Psychology is rooted in a positive approach to mental well-being and awareness of cultural factors affecting mental health. This programme builds on students' previous careers and educational experiences, balances practical and research skills, and enables contact with an international cohort of diverse working professionals.
  • MSc in Organisational and Business Psychology balances practical and research skills to provide students with the knowledge, skills and cultural sensitivity required to apply psychology as a tool for organisational success and individual well-being in workplaces across the globe. Students can enhance their career prospects as experts and strategists in areas such as global talent management, coaching, leadership and organisational change.

In addition, the University of Liverpool is also offering a new online Postgraduate Certificate in Psychology, allowing students with or without a previous degree in Psychology to complete their studies in one year. The certificate offers a foundation in psychology theory and practice, and knowledge of cultural aspects of human behaviour, which are applicable to a wide range of careers worldwide. Students participate in an interactive, global online experience that offers practical, career-enhancing knowledge and skills.

Through its dynamic learning environment, the University of Liverpool's online learning model enables students to earn an advanced academic degree – without interrupting their career – from wherever they are in the world.
