Although people live longer and are currently �healthier� in many ways than before, this has not led to a sense of improved health or wellbeing for all members of society. Health Psychology aims to improve wellbeing by applying psychological theories, methods and research to the promotion of health, prevention and treatment of illness and disability, analysis and improvement of the health care system and health policy formation. A small number of NHS-funded bursaries are available to cover tuition fees and other expenses.
A minimum of a 2.1 Honours degree in Psychology or related subject (qualification must be recognised by British Psychological Society giving Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership).
Semester 1: Perspectives in health psychology; applications of health psychology: communication, systems and context; quantitative analysis; individual, social and cultural differences. Semester 2: Qualitative analysis; individual, social and cultural differences; approaches to illness, disability and coping; research project (MSc only).
Students need to complete and pass the seven modules above to be awarded the MSc Health Psychology. Assessment is by formal exams and coursework (including oral presentations, essays, group work and critical reviews of research).
