About

The University of East London was one of the very first in the world to launch an Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology (MAPPCP) course, which have been running with huge success for eight years on campus and by distance learning.

Overview

Now we are breaking new ground by creating a unique synthesis of the two elements in what is the first MSc course of its kind in the world - the Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology (MAPPCP), which fully integrates positive psychology and coaching psychology to create an innovative training programme for those promoting wellbeing.

There is a growing recognition within the world’s coaching and positive psychology community that such integration is an important step forward, providing clients with a more open-minded approach to their mental health. From the point of view of positive psychology, the course will have a strong foundation in cutting-edge theory and research relating to wellbeing. The coaching element will feature advanced training in working with clients and groups in professional capacities.

Our aim is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be able to help people and organisations to flourish. It combines the study of cutting-edge empirical research and theory on wellbeing with the practical skills and competencies you need to apply this expertise in the real world. The result is a course designed to empower students to truly make a positive difference in the world.

Your future career

When you graduate from this course you will operate as a more flexible consultant or practitioner in a rapidly developing and increasingly sought-after field.

You will be well versed in relevant scientific literature, with the confidence to apply it in your professional practice.

This may involve working with individuals on a one-to-one basis through executive coaching, or working at organisational level using positive organisational scholarship. 

There is a significant demand for the skills that this integrated course develops.

The field of coaching, for instance, is growing dramatically judging by the amount of research output and the degree of recognition it is now receiving from employers as well as educational and governmental institutions. 

Recent evidence showed that 80 per cent of UK organisations now use coaching in some form.

Members of our academic team have consulted informally with industry specialists, appropriate professional associations and academics in other institutions, and there has been consistently positive feedback for this innovative course. 

There are relatively few postgraduate courses specialising in either positive psychology or coaching psychology, and none which integrates the two in the way University of East London has done.

So, we expect graduates of this to be in a prime position to further their professional careers in a wide range of settings.
