The first in the world, and always on the cutting edge
Rapidly becoming one of psychology’s most transformative fields, positive psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable humans and organizations to flourish. Positive psychology differs from historical psychological approaches because of its unique emphasis on the empirical study of human flourishing. While the study of psychology has traditionally focused on improving the human condition by identifying and relieving what is negative in life, positive psychology complements this approach with a focus on strengthening what is positive.

The Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) program at the University of Pennsylvania was the first in the world to offer a degree in this rigorous field of study. Dr. Martin Seligman, founder of the discipline of positive psychology, created the MAPP program to educate and train students at the cutting edge of the field.

Designed for working professionals
The program's hybrid model allows you to explore the theory and practice of positive psychology without relocating to Philadelphia, so you can continue working full-time. The program includes nine courses, completed during one year of full-time study during consecutive fall, spring and summer semesters. The low-residency format consists of 10 required on-site visits to the University of Pennsylvania campus in Philadelphia, where students and faculty gather for intensive weekends of learning and networking.

Structured for real-world application
Whether you are a credentialed professional seeking to transform your workplace or career, or are building a foundation for further graduate study, the MAPP curriculum allows you to apply the topics most relevant to your interests and goals. You will receive a thorough grounding in the research methods and theoretical underpinnings of positive psychology, and learn to apply its theories and perspectives within individual and organizational settings. The program culminates with an individual capstone project that advances both your professional development and the field of positive psychology itself.

Renowned faculty and passionately engaged peers
Program alumni report overwhelmingly that their favorite aspect of the program is the exceptional group of people who make up our diverse, intellectually stimulating and intensely supportive community.

Each year, approximately 40 students enroll in the Master of Applied Positive Psychology program, including successful businesspeople, practicing psychologists and medical professionals, scientists, artists, life coaches, lawyers and more. They’re all gathered to study with a faculty composed of major pioneers in the field, who are also dedicated and personable teachers.

Flourishing after MAPP
Through their experiences in the Master of Applied Psychology program, students find a powerful new perspective on their workplaces, career plans and personal lives. Our students go on to incredibly diverse careers, applying what they’ve learned to transform their current workplaces or to begin new careers in consulting, teaching, business, healthcare, media and more.

We look forward to speaking with you about the exciting opportunities at MAPP and discussing how our program can help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Courses and Curriculum

The Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) curriculum is designed to train you in the history, theory and research methods of positive psychology, as well as its application in professional settings.

The program consists of nine courses, completed during one year of full-time study during consecutive fall, spring and summer semesters.

During the fall semester, you will begin the program with courses that focus on the science, research and theoretical underpinnings of positive psychology, giving students a strong foundation to build on throughout the remainder of the program.
The spring semester courses offer content to help you learn how to apply positive psychology in various professional settings, including creating a plan for positive interventions in a real organization.
The capstone project, which is completed during the summer semester, allows you to integrate what you’ve learned throughout the program, and apply it in the professional or research domain most significant to you. It often serves as a stepping stone to the application of positive psychology in a particular professional domain or to further research in a specific area.
The curriculum includes the following eight classes, in addition to the capstone project:

Introduction to Positive Psychology
An introduction to the research, theory and intellectual history of positive psychology.

Research Methods and Evaluation
A methodology course exploring the valid and reliable assessment of positive emotions, character strengths and meaning in life.

Foundations of Positive Interventions
An investigation into the theoretical, empirical and experiential nature of positive interventions.

Approaches to the Good Life
An examination of four perspectives on human flourishing.

Applied Positive Interventions
A service-learning course in which students study the applied work of master positive psychology practitioners and create positive psychology applications for non-profit organizations.

Positive Psychology and Individuals
An exploration of positive psychology applications in coaching, clinical and other relational settings.

Positive Psychology and Organizations
An exploration of positive psychology, appreciative inquiry and positive organizational scholarship in traditional and social business settings.

Humanities and Human Flourishing
An exploration of integrating culture and science to support the deeper understanding and more effective cultivation of human flourishing.

Capstone

The capstone project is a distinguishing feature of the Master of Applied Positive Psychology program, blending academic and professional experiences and serving as the culmination of your work in the program. Through the capstone project, you will explore, in depth, the theories and practical applications you’ve learned in the program, to advance the field of positive psychology itself. Previous capstone projects have included empirical studies, literature reviews, book prospectuses, workshops and other endeavors.

The capstone is completed during the summer semester and has no on-site course requirements. You will conduct this project work independently, with your advisor’s ongoing guidance, in a setting that is significant to you and most relevant to your future professional goals.

Applied behaviour analysis has been recognised as the treatment of choice for a broad range of clinical problems (e.g., early intervention for autism, responding to challenging behaviour, classroom management, effective instructional practices). Positive behavioural support (PBS) is an example of behaviour analysis in a particular practice setting (usually implemented for adults with intellectual disabilities or within special education settings). PBS aims to improve a person’s quality of life through the use of a framework that allows behaviour to be analysed in the social, physical, and broader context in which it occurs. The aims of the course are to develop an advanced conceptual understanding of applied behaviour analysis, behavioural concepts and philosophy relevant to the development and treatment of psychological disorders, advanced knowledge of positive behavioural support and research methods. In addition, students will develop key competencies in the use of behavioural principles in clinical settings using the positive behaviour support model. In addition to obtaining PBS and behaviour analytic knowledge, graduates will have acquired critical evaluation, time management, collaborative working, sound professional conduct, and oral communication skills. The course is taught via lectures, group discussions, seminars, and activities. Assessments include written assignments in a range of formats and unseen exams. Students may undertake a research thesis in a range of available applied settings with a range of participants, or they may complete an internship across two years (limited places available). During the internship, students will work in an applied setting and will submit a portfolio of their clinical work at the end of each year.

Do you want to help people who are vulnerable to stigma and isolated from society? Our MSc in Psychosocial Interventions covers psychological and social approaches used to manage mental health and improve the way people integrate in society. You'll learn skills and knowledge that will help you make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Visit the website: http://bucks.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/MH2PSI2/

Is this course for me?

We live in a society where mental health is stigmatised. A negative social environment can often make an individual's condition worse and recovery longer. Psychosocial Interventions don't just look at an individual's psychological state but also their social environment. Therefore as well as treating the illness, psychosocial interventions focus on making sure the individual has a supportive environment.

Typically this course is of interest to students who have a degree in the social sciences, nursing or mental health. A background in psychology gives you a useful insight to mental health and research methods but it is not essential.

This course also attracts practitioners in health, mental health and forensic settings who already work with people who benefit from psychosocial interventions.

What will this course cover?

Psychosocial interventions relate to an individual's psychological development and how it affects them within a social environment. The course covers a range of psychological and social approaches. Psychological approaches can be broadly classified into behavioural, cognitive, humanistic and motivational. On the other hand, social approaches emphasise working with families or wider social networks.

The course begins by focusing on broad themes such as motivation, recovery, hope, resilience, and problem solving. You will then cover specific interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy, family intervention skills and positive psychology. You will also cover forensic health skills, applied research skills and data analysis. In year two you will complete a dissertation in your area of interest.

You will learn about various clinical approaches and learn how to develop creative solutions when dealing with complex issues. By the end of the course you will understand the main concepts, theories and effectiveness of psychosocial interventions.

You'll be able to identify physical and mental health problems, recognise the basic tools needed and how to apply them to the problem.

Attendance and Personal Study

You will be expected to attend 20 days per year at the University and allocate time each week for self-directed study.

Modules

Year One
• Foundations of PSI: Underlying principles, concepts and values
• Forensic Health Skills
• Family Intervention Skills

Year Two
• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Skills & Interventions
• Positive Psychology in Practice
• Applied Research Skills
• Data Analysis and Interpretation
• Postgraduate Dissertation

Careers

Our MSc in Psychosocial Interventions teaches you how to make a lasting impact on the lives of people affected by mental and physical illness. We will prepare you to help individuals overcome their challenges.

By the time you finish the course you'll have the ability to put theory into practice. You'll be prepared to deal with complex issues and be able to make effective judgments in a professional setting.

With the ability to critically reflect and problem solve when faced with clinical issues, you'll be ready to apply the theory of psychosocial interventions to the challenges you face from day to day.

Diversity within very local communities is growing as our world becomes more interconnected and our markets more globalised. Within this increased complexity the need to understand diversity, its impact and consequences is ever more crucial. The way we deal with differences between people is a key variable in almost every sphere of modern life and of particular relevance for public and private management. Managing diversity and capturing its benefits is a key challenge for contemporary societies. It is as important for secure and stable cities as for successful and profitable companies, and especially critical for public services managers with heavily constrained expenditures.

The MPA Global Diversity Governance builds upon the global understanding and practical expertise that Coventry University, through the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR), has developed in the fields of intercultural relations, social cohesion and diversity around the world. It is a programme that rises to the challenges of managing diversity and is designed to support professionals from around the world who are responsible for service design and delivery that must take full account of an unprecedented level of diversity in their communities, workplaces and families.

The programme is open to professionals with the requisite qualifications looking to more effectively understand and confront the challenges of diverse societies and manage lasting, positive social change in their own local areas.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE ENHANCE MY CAREER PROSPECTS?

Delivery Model

Residency
This two-year MA Educational Leadership and Management program is comprised of one mandatory two-week on-campus residency and distance learning courses. In recognition of the school year and the resulting limited window of opportunity for students to attend a residency, the residency takes place during the last two weeks of July or the first two weeks of August.

The residency is a carefully designed period of intense academic study. The schedule of instruction and studying during the residency is structured to optimize the face-to-face access to instructors, develop networks with fellow students, and access the support services of the university if required. The typical daily schedule is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Team meetings, homework, and readings are done outside of these hours.

This program culminates with an applied research project that will enable students to integrate the skills and knowledge gained in the previous coursework in the examination of a real-world issue of significance to the advancement of school improvement theory and practice.

Online Learning
Distance courses are delivered entirely online through innovative, easy to use Internet technologies. Participants draw upon web resources as well as more traditional print media, while using online discussion groups and drop boxes to work towards the electronic submission of assignments. Prior to the beginning of each course, students are provided with a list of resources including textbooks and/or online readings, plus a detailed course schedule. Learning activities and assignments are designed to allow participants to identify the practical applications of the course content and to work with others to construct both a personal and shared meaning from their experiences.

Each course requires a level of effort of approximately 10 hours per week. This varies from student to student and becomes easier as students familiarize themselves with Royal Roads University's distance learning technologies, and learn how to work effectively with team members in a virtual setting.
