Stress and Health

Study how stress affects illness and examine ways to improve individual wellbeing through practical applications in stress management. Our programme is designed for graduates in psychology and the biological sciences, and professionals from a range of backgrounds including healthcare and counselling. You will gain a robust science-based qualification in the study of stress, dealing specifically with the mechanisms by which psychological stress can induce illnesses and examining issues of measurement, prevalence and management. This is especially pertinent today as you will study occupational stress and management for people in the workplace. Taught by leading experts in the field, you will learn about how stress medicine and psychoneuroimmunology are growth areas in the discipline. You will be able to conduct and present your research project in an area of your interest. There will be an opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience by recruiting a sample group of subjects for a stress assessment. You will then produce an assessment report which will form the basis of risk assessment and guidance for intervention. You will gain access to state-of-the-art laboratories and resources for conducting research projects.
