About Psychology at Bournemouth University

This Master's by Research will be supervised by Department of Psychology staff within our Faculty of Science & Techology. 

There is so much we have yet to discover about the human mind and how it works that there is always scope for exciting and forward-thinking research within the field of psychology. Our experts can guide you through your Master's by Research (MRes) as you explore complex problems and delve into an area of psychology that you're passionate about, collaborating with our knowledgable team to produce insightful and impactful research. 

Leading BU's ground breaking-research in prosopagnosia is Dr Sarah Bate, who examines the nature of face-processing at both ends of the spectrum; those who suffer from a condition called prosopagnosia (more commonly known as face blindness) and are unable to recognise others from their faces alone, and ‘super-recognisers’ who have exceptional face-processing abilities.

Discover more specialist research themes on the Department's web pages.

The minimum completion time for the full-time course is 12 months with flexibility to take up to 18 months. If you would prefer to complete the course part-time, the minimum completion time is 24 months with flexibility to take up to 36 months to complete.
