Health Psychology

This programme focuses on cutting edge research to understand how behaviours influence an individual's decision making; help push the boundaries of the promotion and maintenance of health; the prevention and management of illness and vulnerability and health risk. Research students are currently looking at developing interventions to address the psychosocial needs of people living with a range of chronic illnesses including cancer and heart disease. Other research is also looking at the psychological mechanisms that underpin health behaviour motivation, and developing interventions to encourage children and young people to engage in healthy lifestyle behaviours.

Assessment methods

A thesis of no more than 100,000 words is submitted, which demonstrates original research that contributes significantly to the subject area. This is then followed by an oral examination of the thesis (viva).
