About

The Psychology (Health) program from the University of Adelaide is one of only two health psychology degrees currently available in Australia. It provides the professional knowledge needed to practise as a registered health psychologist. 

Overview

What will you do?

By taking the Psychology (Health) program from the University of Adelaide you will:

  • Enjoy small class sizes with leading health psychologists and educators.
  • Learn about illness, disease, and the promotion and maintenance of health.
  • Study health care systems and policy. 
  • Explore psychological factors that contribute to ill health.
  • Undertake three industry placements totalling over 1000 hours.
  • Network with future employers in mental health, health care and government settings.

Where could it take you?

Upon successful completion, you’ll be eligible to apply for full registration with the Psychology Board of Australia. You could design public health campaigns to prevent addiction, injury and illness. 

You might help people manage chronic pain or cope with diagnoses and medical treatments. Perhaps you’ll work to shift individual attitudes, beliefs and behaviours in the clinic. To gain endorsement, further postgraduate supervision is required. 

Career Readiness

After graduation, students have the skills to assist people with mental health and chronic physical conditions and are highly sought after for roles in the public and private sector, or can choose to start their own practice. 

Health psychologists specialise in understanding the relationships between psychological factors and health and illness. Health psychologists practise in two main areas: health promotion and clinical health.
