About

The Applied Psychology programme at the University of Chester offers an excellent opportunity to explore the application of psychology, and learn fundamental principles of assessment and intervention development.

Overview

Learn about the science and practice of applying evidence-based psychological interventions to improve the wellbeing of individuals and solve organisational and societal problems.

The Applied Psychology programme at the University of Chester emphasises the need for underpinning scientific principles and for sound evidence to support professional practice. Examples are drawn from many areas of applied psychology.

Why study this course with us?

Applied psychology is a broad field, comprising not only the work of practitioner psychologists (Health Psychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Sport and Exercise Psychologists etc.), but also that of non-psychologists who apply psychological knowledge, such as coaches, counsellors, teachers and managers. 

The course emphasises evidence-based practice, providing an opportunity to learn about intervention design and how those interventions can be assessed using rigorous scientific standards. The course adopts an 'active learning' approach, giving you the chance to try your hand at assessing and intervening in the classroom setting so you can gain confidence in applying what you learn as you go. The teaching team includes psychologists with practitioner experience in a range of applied settings.
