This Masters degree examines the relationship between lifestyle and health and looks at the ways in which people react to ill health.

Our unique learning environment gives you first-hand practical experience of a range of intervention and measurement techniques that are not normally available on courses of this kind, including biological assessment sessions, and access to a sleep centre and a stress laboratory.

Delivered by a team of leading researchers and expert practitioners and accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this course delivers a comprehensive understanding of modern-day health psychology and will equip you with the skills to take you into the workplace.

The Department of Psychology’s world-renowned research centres have delivered more than £5 million of research in the last five years.

This course can also be taken part time - for more information, please view this web-page: https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-at-northumbria/courses/health-psychology-dtphpy6/

Learn From The Best

The course is delivered by an expert team of researchers and practitioners whose backgrounds range from sleep science to stress analysis. As all members of the teaching team are actively involved in research and practice – including many lecturers who also provide consultancy on a commercial basis – you can be sure all modules are highly relevant to current developments in the sector.

Several teaching sessions are delivered by visiting practitioners, providing you with first-hand accounts of health psychology in practice, whilst broadening your network of professional contacts.

Teaching And Assessment

The MSc in Health Psychology is a careful blend of research-led teaching and practical experience, covering the core areas of Health Psychology, as identified by the British Psychological Society.

While our teaching methods include traditional lectures, seminars and discussion groups, we place a strong emphasis on non-traditional methods including interactive and practical learning sessions. This approach has been developed around the techniques you will need in the workplace after graduation.

In addition to exam and essay-based assessment, we use a variety of innovative assessment methods to develop the skills you will need to progress in the health psychology field. These include ethics and funding applications, peer feedback, media releases and reports for non-academic audiences.

Learning Environment

Our specialist teaching laboratories are designed to maximise practical and theoretical learning. You will improve your analytical and interpretative skills using a combination of advanced statistical software packages, online survey platforms and psychophysiological measurement techniques. You will gain first-hand practical experience of a range of measurement and intervention techniques that are not available on other courses of this kind, and be supported to develop your own areas of expertise in work-based and research settings.

All postgraduate Psychology students have access to the PG hub for group and individual work. It also offers the opportunity for non-assessed group work, such as journal clubs.

Part-time students particularly benefit from online IT facilities which include electronic reading lists, lecture capture and feedback tools to support learning. Northumbria’s eLearning Portal includes discussion boards and a dedicated psychology area which provides a convenient communication forum when you’re off campus.

Research-Rich Learning

The course is delivered by expert practitioners and leading researchers in the field of health psychology who draw from their own experiences and wider contemporary research studies to ensure that you benefit from developments at the cutting edge of the discipline.

You will have first-hand experience of research techniques through case studies, workshops and published evidence. This approach strengthens your analytical skills and allows you to develop your own research interests and areas of expertise.

The thesis is an opportunity to conceptualise, plan and execute research, and to analyse and interpret data with real-world application. To extend the research focus of the course, your thesis will be written as a journal submission, which means you may be able to publish your paper.

Give Your Career An Edge

The course is accredited as Stage 1 training by the British Psychological Society. This, when accompanied by the BPS’ Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC), provides the basis for professional development as a practitioner on the completion of Stage 2 training.

A number of research and other work opportunities often arise through staff and their network of contacts. You will have the opportunity to meet a number of these contacts through teaching sessions with visiting industry experts and researchers.

Your Future

This career-focus of this Masters degree means graduates complete the course with a real understanding of research and practice in the world of health psychology as well as a thorough knowledge of cutting-edge issues in the sector and a range of transferable skills.

The course prepares you for careers in the areas of health promotion, healthcare delivery, illness management and rehabilitation. Previous graduates have gone on to work across the spectrum of health-related psychology disciplines locally, nationally and globally. Some work as assistant psychologists in the NHS, charitable organisations and the private sector, some have moved on to research posts, and others are undertaking PhDs. The broad skills-base means that health psychologists are also attractive to consultancy companies looking for expertise in training, research or intervention.

You will be based in the Department of Psychology at BU and the course is also supported by the Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine Section of the Royal Society of Medicine. It has been developed to meet the needs of healthcare professionals and research psychologists with key units being taught over weekends or condensed into one week, and the other units being taught on just two days a week with the option of part-time study available. It is also ideal for graduate students with plans for a future in clinical / medical practice and those looking to be trained in the research methods required for PhD level study.

A key benefit of the course is that it contributes a minimum of 72 hours towards the European Certificate of Hypnosis, awarded by the European Society of Hypnosis.

You will be trained in the use of hypnosis and will be able to apply it in a range of clinical and research settings depending on your profession and experience. Graduates without a clinical background will be qualified to use hypnosis in ethically approved research protocols, and in clinical and medical settings in the presence of, and following a request from, a suitably qualified clinical or medical specialist.

The course is unique in that it is taught by leading researchers and clinico-medical practitioners of hypnosis from the Royal Society of Medicine.
