This programme has been designed to meet the growing need for graduates with an advanced knowledge of how psychology informs health-related topics.
You explore the relationship between the psychological processes and health states, and the ways in which psychology can be applied to promote and protect people's health. You develop sound research abilities, and understand how psychology can be integrated into the organisation and delivery of health care services.
The course comprises six core modules. You may also have the opportunity to work with patients in local hospitals or health care services.
You learn by knowledge and skills acquisition through directive teaching, group discussions, independent exploration and examination of academic resources and practising.
Learning at master's level differs from undergraduate level in that you are expected to be more autonomous, independent and active in finding your own resources and in taking responsibility for a professional approach and conduct during all aspects of the course.
You are assessed through seen and unseen examinations, essays, portfolio, and poster and oral presentations.
This course is accredited by the BPS and meets Stage 1 criteria for chartered psychologist status.
After Stage 1, students can become chartered psychologists by successfully completing the Doctorate in Health Psychology or the BPS Stage 2 Qualification in Health Psychology.
Applicants should have at least a second-class honours degree in psychology and the Graduate Basis for Chartership as recognised by the BPS. Applicants with other degrees are invited to call the admission enquiries number to discuss possible additional requirements for entry.
