Program Overview

How can we understand, intervene and promote health and wellbeing across the course of life? Health psychology works to answer this question, looking towards the interaction of psychological, social and biological factors to understand health and illness.

Health psychology moves away from the medicalisation of health and illness. Instead, on this course, you take a more whole-person approach to understanding health and illness, studying social issues and aspects such as obesity, lifestyle and stress. Taught by an academic team actively involved in research in the field, you benefit from their up-to-the-minute knowledge and research skills.

This course forms stage one of the training you need to become a chartered psychologist member of the Division of Health Psychology within the British Psychological Society.

Why choose this course?

  • Gain new insights into the theory and practice of health psychology
  • Learn to show how the links between scientific theory and practice can guide the collection and interpretation of empirical data
  • Develop a systematic understanding and critical awareness of current problems in the field
  • Gain confident knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods which will allow you to perform complex data analysis, interpretation, evaluation and synthesis
  • Develop your competence in a range of techniques including multivariate analyses
  • Benefit from a strong sense of personal responsibility and professionalism that will enable you to practise or conduct research within ethical guidelines
