Re: MSc Forensic Psychology and Crime at Coventry University

The Investigative Psychology is less clinical based more David Canter style. I don't think thats what you are looking for. I currently am doing a MSC in Forensic Psychology. I am actually working on two reports both consisting on assessment, case formulation and treatment. But, a more heavy focus i...

Re: MSc Forensic Psychology and Crime at Coventry University

Another course I would suggest to look at is MSc Investigative Psychology at University of Huddersfield. It also gives you Stage 1 forensic psychology accreditation, and is 1 year distance learning. It is full time so a lot of work but most people work full time as well and manage todo it. Hi Aliso...

MSc Forensic Psychology and Crime at Coventry University

Hi all, I have been thinking about this over and over and I don't think I can come to a decision by myself, without talking to some people who have more experience on this. I currently hold a B.Sc in Criminology (a high 2.1 I think - 67% but I did my undergraduate studies in Belgium, so I'm not sure...

Re: Specifying my research question - Identity

Of course do your best but make sure the project is deliverable on time, and within budget :D Simplifying and keeping it deliverable is definitely important and is also something I do struggle with - not with the delivering part but the simplifying part! I misunderstood your previous comment as in ...

Re: Specifying my research question - Identity

An MSc is usually a post-grad qualification. Scottish universities sometimes offer MScs at undergrad level after a 4 year course, but most institutions offer MScs as post-grad. I don't want to talk for alexh, but I'm guessing he thought you were an undergrad because your initial post doesn't actual...

Re: Specifying my research question - Identity

It can be a mistake to try to make your undergraduate thesis define your career. Don't overcomplicate it. I'm a little confused - is a MSc regarded as a undergraduate study in the UK? I thought BSc was undergraduate and MSc was graduate? I am genuinely interested in the topic, so I'm not attempting...

Re: Specifying my research question - Identity

Thank you so much for your suggestions! As Sarah says, you need to get ethical approval ASAP. It may not be easy to obtain, especially if you're an undergraduate. I'm a postgrad, doing a MSc in Criminology - but you are both right ethical approval is definitely needed, however I first need to hand i...

Re: Specifying my research question - Identity

I would be inclined to take an exploratory approach - e.g. to explore the experiences of people leaving a cult, and how they adjust to life outside of the cult. Indeed, that was actually what I came to think of after Geishawife's questions pointed me into that direction. I think I'll be pursuing th...

Re: Specifying my research question - Identity

Thanks for your feedback Geishawife, I'm conducting the study in Belgium and the Belgian government set up an organsation called study and advisory group of harmful cultic associations. The way they define these harmful cultic associations is based on their criminal actions, so if a group has a spir...

Re: Specifying my research question - Identity

Hi Sarah, What I meant was that I don't want to say which cult I'm researching, as I'm afraid to upset people, or start a huge discussion. There will of course be more information on the cult and the way I define cult as part of my research in the actual proposal. Yes, I'll be conducting interviews ...

Specifying my research question - Identity

Hello, I'm currently preparing my research proposal for my Criminology thesis. The reason why I'm posting my question here is two-fold 1) I think the topic is very relevant to psychology 2) I'm hoping to start a conversion Psychology course and become a Clinical Psychologist in the long run, so I'm ...

Re: Which Course to choose for my career goal?

I did see this course but was hoping to be on my way to a clinical doctorate by then as its a 3 years masters programme :) Well, I wouldn't necessarily do the full degree course. You could just do the certificate or diploma, which takes one and two years respectively. It's only part-time, so it migh...
