This course is aimed at those with a good first degree in psychology who also have the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and who wish to specialise in the psychology of health and illness. We are seeking accreditation by the BPS for the MSc in Health Psychology.
Completion of the course can lead to work directly related to health psychology but not requiring further professional training, for example, health promotion, research related to health and work within healthcare settings.
Upon accreditation by the BPS, completion of the Master¿s programme will provide the basis (stage 1) for entry to further professional training (stage 2) towards eligibility for Chartered Membership of the BPS (CPsychol), full membership of the Division of Health Psychology of the BPS, and professional practice as a Health Psychologist.
This course will provide you with not only a strong theoretical background in health psychology but also a variety of practical skills required for working in the field such as the ability to design, deliver and evaluate health interventions.
