About

The M.S. in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Staffordshire University will provide you with an understanding of research theory, practice, and give you an opportunity to explore CBT’s empirical status. This award will be a ‘top-up’ to your BABCP accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Overview

The Cognitive Behavioural Therapy programme at Staffordshire University provides a focused and critical examination of CBT practice, policy and research. Through two specialist modules, you’ll broaden your knowledge of the issues and practices that are developing within the field of CBT to an expert level. You’ll learn to critically appraise current and new CBT developments, as well as evaluating the policies and directives that may have sparked their emergence, in order to develop your capacity to provide constructive input and bring about change in the health service.

The course has been designed to give you the opportunity to develop competencies in the processes of systematic and analytical enquiry into the theories and practices of CBT, to improve your own practice. The specific programme has been designed to support individuals whose work, home commitments or location make it challenging to physically attend university. This course provides an opportunity for you to collaborate with staff and your peers in a dynamic learning environment, engage with content directly via video lectures, synchronous and asynchronous text and audio discussions supported by 24/7 access to a range of online resources.

Careers

As with many postgraduate taught qualifications, students use the qualification to enhance an already existing career as part of CPD activity. This qualification may be used for career progression and to stand out amongst professionals within the field. In addition, graduates may consider using the qualification to go on to further study by commencing a PhD.
