Masters degrees in Community Psychology involve the use of psychological theory to understand individuals and groups within community contexts.
Related subjects include Social Psychology and Psychological Intervention. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Psychology or Social Science.
Community Psychology aims to determine the psychological aspects of the relationships between individuals and groups in communities and wider society. This includes analysing the quality of life of individuals within different communities, societies and institutions.
Courses in this field typically examine issues such as homelessness, societal responses to older adults and LGBT mental health. You might also examine topics such as disadvantages in the workplace and organisational wellbeing. Ultimately, you will explore the formation of ideologies and beliefs, and the psychology behind the creation of groups and institutions.
Careers are highly diverse, and may include a range of roles offering psychological assistance, such as clinical assessment, psychotherapy, counselling or social work. You could also explore avenues in policy-making and administration for local or central government, regulatory authorities and charities.
