The MSc Addiction Psychology provides advanced study of the psychological theory underpinning the development and maintenance of pharmacological and behavioural addictions, as well as their evidence-based treatments.
The addictions field is wide in scope and this programme extends beyond traditional substance-related dependence disorders to include a wide range of established and emerging behavioural addictions, such as Internet Gaming and Gambling Disorder.
In addition, you will learn practical research skills and advanced psychological analytical techniques in the investigation of a range of addiction disorders.
A strong applied focus reflects the teaching and research strengths of the psychology group, with emphasis on the importance of employability. We support students in developing and recognising both generic and transferable skills. The master's course provides a solid foundation for doctoral level study.
You can exit after 9 months with PgDip.
