About the course
Our Health Psychology MSc provides an opportunity for you to explore the many ways in which psychology can be applied to an understanding of health and illness, and applied to modern healthcare systems.
As well as focusing on a range of theories, models and studies within the discipline, the course benefits from two distinctive strands which are especially pertinent to working as a contemporary health psychologist – namely a focus on social and cultural diversity and interprofessional relationships.
There is detailed coverage of social and cultural diversity, using psychology to tackle health inequalities, inter professional relationships and eating behaviours across the lifespan.
The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) who have commended the course on the quality of its student support, quality management of practitioner input, research methods training, range of assessments, links with local communities and services and the development of interprofessional skills.
Appeals to graduates that have completed a relevant undergraduate degree andare looking to further their study, as well as professionals looking to enhance their career opportunities.
