Dr Jacqui McKechnie

Senior Lecturer
I joined Psychology in 1996 and took over as Programme Leader for BSc / BSc Hons Psychology in September 2007. I am also the Programme Leader for Bsc / BSc (Hons) Psychology with Interactive Entertainment, a unique programme which considers the influence of digital media on the user. It provides an understanding of psychological theory with a focus on computer gaming. Another Programme I lead is the Graduate Diploma in Psychology. This is a one year programme which allows graduates from other disciplines to get a qualification which allows them to be registered with the British Psychology Society. This is the first step for those who want to pursue a career as a Chartered Psychologist.
