Our Health Psychology MSc has been designed to provide 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 inter-professional 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) which commended the programme in May 2011 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 inter-professional skills
•Appeals to graduates that have completed a relevant undergraduate degree and are looking to further their study, as well as professionals looking to enhance their career opportunities

The MSc is made up of theoretical, vocational and research-based modules which together make up 180 credits of study. The modules you can expect to study are all 15 credits, unless otherwise stated:

• Theories and Perspectives in Health Psychology
• Mind, Body and Health
• Understanding and Managing Chronic Health Conditions
• Health Inequalities, Diversity and Social Inclusion
• Psychology of Health and Food Through The Lifespan
• Health Psychology in Theory and Contemporary Practice
• Research Methods and Data Analysis for Applied Psychologists
• Advanced Applied Psychology Dissertation (Health) - This latter module is taken at the end of the programme and involves students developing and carrying out an original piece of qualitative or quantitative research under the guidance of an experienced health psychologist.

Full time students will attend the university for two full days a week. Variable for part-time students depending on the duration of their studies.

Students will have a personal academic tutor whom you are encouraged to meet with regularly. His or her role is to provide you with individualised support throughout your time with us. You will undertake a variety of assessments including project work, essays and literature reviews, problem-based activities and electronic-learning tasks.
Bespoke guidance materials are provided for all forms of assessment on the course.

The course aims to give you the opportunity to: develop a critical understanding of the theory and research that underpins the study of well-being. Develop awareness of the cultural, social, and economic factors that influence well-being. Acquire knowledge about the range of traditional and contemporary approaches that may be employed in the prevention and alleviation of psychological distress.

•The study of well-being is a popular and rapidly expanding field nationally and internationally, and we are amongst one of the first UK universities to offer training in this area at MSc level.
•The course reflects national initiatives for the enhancement of well-being in the prevention and alleviation of mental health problems (e.g. depression, anxiety and stress)
•The course offers the unique opportunity to consider the factors that characterise and influence well-being alongside those that might contribute to psychological distress; also an awareness of the cultural, social and economic contexts in which they lie
•Suitable for students progressing from undergraduate study, professionals in the sector and international students looking to further their knowledge in this subject area in the UK
•The course is available flexibly, on either a full or part-time basis, allowing practitioners to further their professional development alongside work

These aims are achieved through the following modules:

• Approaches to the Study of Well-being
• Research Methods and Data Analysis for Psychologists
• Well-being through the Lifespan
• Well-being in Cultural, Social and Economic Contexts
• Approaches to Psychological Problems
• Lifestyle, Wellness and Well-being
• Research Dissertation

You may choose to take one of two combinations of modules as a Postgraduate Certificate or all modules except the dissertation module as a Postgraduate Diploma.

All teaching is delivered within two dedicated laboratory/taught Master’s rooms. Teaching facilities include dedicated laboratory and practical work areas, an observation suite and a vision research laboratory. You will also enjoy excellent IT and computing facilities within both the faculty and the library, and have access to a number of statistical and software packages including SPSS, Adobe Audition and SuperLab

The course uses a wide variety of teaching and learning methods and assessment is based almost exclusively on coursework. The latter is varied, and includes formal essays, the production of research reports, real-time and web-based presentations and problem-solving tasks, a literature review, and a reflective portfolio. The research dissertation provides you with an experience of the research process from its inception to completion.
