Psychology MA (Hons)
The MA (Hons) in Psychology will introduce you to the full range of areas that are studied by psychologists, including perception, cognition, motivation and behaviour. You will be grounded in the theoretical foundations and modern developments of contemporary psychology, and emphasis is placed on practical classes and on learning research techniques right from the start.
Psychology is studied up to Honours level in both the Faculty of Science (BSc) and the Faculty of Arts (MA). Students who have a background in the arts or who wish to study Psychology alongside arts subjects at St Andrews should apply for the MA. For those interested in studying Psychology alongside science subjects, the BSc in Psychology may be of interest.
A degree in Psychology from St Andrews is recognised by the British Psychological Society as conferring basis for graduate registration, and qualifies you to undertake training in various areas of professional psychology including both clinical and educational psychology.
