Things You’ll Learn When You Retrain in Social Neuroscience

A master’s in neuroscience subjects, such as Social Neuroscience, can help psychology students connect social behaviour with stimuli in the real world. This is hugely beneficial for a range of career paths. And on our course, you will learn more than just social neuroscience theories. You will have the opportunity to develop a range of skills that are applicable in the workplace.

Our tutors will also provide one-to-one mentorship to align the course to your career goals and help you put theory and into applied practice. Here are just a few of the things our programme covers:

Neuroscientific research skills

During your time on the course, you’ll get to develop your psychology knowledge with advanced research skills. Some of the research tasks include electrophysiology and eye-tracker experiments, with access to Neuroscan software and hardware, and Stim3 software.

Critical evaluation

In addition to neuroscientific research, you’ll also have a chance to improve your critical evaluation skills. Not only will you learn how to handle complex data sets, translating raw data into valuable insight for the field of medicine, but you’ll develop your ability to think beyond the numbers. This transferable skill applies to every line of work, improving independent thinking, decision-making, and leadership.

Hands-on work experience

Our master’s programme features a lab-based work experience module, giving you access to live research projects within the School of Education and Psychology. This means you will get to apply your skills in a real setting, achieving real results.

Upon graduation, our dedicated Employability Team will also work with you to put you on the right path to success, and hopefully secure you a job in your chosen area. While some graduates move onto PhD studies, many move into careers within healthcare, science, the media, business, education, and other sectors. Wherever you see yourself, our programme is the perfect platform for retraining.
