Why study this subject?
Through this programme you can explore historical and current theories and approaches within health psychology and various theoretical models of health-related behaviours. You will also develop practical skills essential to the work of a health psychologist, including collaborative working, therapeutic skills, research skills and patient and public engagement skills.
This master’s is the beginning of the pathway to Chartered Health Psychology status, if you later complete Stage Two of the health psychology training route (through BPS or accredited provider). It is also a great foundation for other areas of psychology, e.g. if you want to complete Clinical Psychology training. Students can pursue careers in academia, research and teaching, or health promotion, policy environments and public health. Typically, many students go on to do further study. If a student does not have Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership, then this MSc will not be Stage One of Health Psychology pathway unless they acquire this during the programme.
