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.
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.
