The Psychological Well-being MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert course at De Montfort University reflects national and international developments in the enhancement of mental health and wellbeing, exploring psychological problems including depression, anxiety and stress.
Many of our experienced academic team have expertise in the specific domains of wellbeing, which are embedded within the course, including developmental psychology, occupational psychology, health psychology, clinical psychology, counselling psychology and cognitive/biological psychology.
Benefit from occasional contributions from practitioners and academics working within a variety of wellbeing related settings such as work, education and health. Teaching facilities include dedicated laboratory and practical work areas, an observation suite and a vision research laboratory.
- Completion of the course will lead to a number of career opportunities worldwide, including research, teaching and those within the caring professions. It also facilitates career development and progression. Other students might use the course as a stepping-stone to specialised PhD study.
- Although the course does not culminate in a qualification in Clinical Psychology, its content will be highly relevant to those applying for training in this area, or within related fields such as psychotherapy (e.g.The NHS IAPT Service), counselling or coaching. There are also opportunities in the field of public health and well-being (e.g. in areas such as smoking cessation, safer sex promotion, drug and alcohol use). A full day of employability and enhancement events is held in February or March each year.
