In drawing together the complementary fields of
community psychology and critical social psychology, we have sought
to develop an MSc that will appeal to students who value a focus on
social critique and social justice in conjunction with a rigourous
and scholarly approach to the discipline of psychology. The
Community & Critical Social Psychology (CCSP) MSc will thus
enable you to take a fresh approach to psychology, involving a
focus on critique of accepted ways of working within the discipline
and engagements with pressing ‘real-world’ concerns.
What qualifications do I need?
Applicants will normally have a 2:1 in Psychology
or a closely related discipline, although in cases where
exceptional performance on the final year project, mitigating
circumstances or relevant employment can be demonstrated,
applicants may be considered who have a 2:2. Applicants whose
first degree is not in psychology will be accepted on a
case-by-case basis to ensure that they have covered sufficient
levels of psychology and research methods during their first
degree. Applicants whose first language is not English should
have IELTS at grade 6.5 or above (including a minimum of 6.5 in the
writing component) or another acceptable English Language
