Health psychology is the educational, scientific, and professional contributions of psychology to: understanding the promotion and maintenance of health and the aetiology of illness, the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of physical illness, the study of psychological, social, emotional, and behavioural factors in physical illness, the improvement of the health care system, and formulation of health policy. This course aims to train people who will become scientist-practitioners working in a range of health settings.
The BPS-accredited MSc programme extends over one full calendar year for full-time students and two years for part-time students (Please note that this programme is designed for full time students. Part time students are therefore only considered in exceptional circumstances)
The core taught component of the programme extends over two semesters and will take place on two days a week. In addition to the core modules, you will be expected to take one optional unit and at least three skills training sessions. Some tutorial and seminar teaching may also be scheduled on other days.
