About MSci Psychology with Innovation

The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with a breadth enabling them to work across specialisms and cultures.

This course combines in-depth subject specialism in psychology with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. You will study psychology to gain a solid discipline strength and, alongside this, apply your subject knowledge to innovate and translate your ideas into plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.

The course will equip you to use the critical, theoretical and practical skills central to psychology, allowing you to develop your knowledge and skills across a range of areas as you proceed through the course. 

You will come together with students from other innovation disciplines such as computer science and history to learn and apply design and systems thinking to digital and creative ideas. You will put this into practice working in transdisciplinary teams, ultimately creating new ventures together.
