Course summary

The Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health Masters degree is designed to equip you with an in-depth knowledge of psychological theory relevant to the improvement and maintenance of psychological wellbeing and sound mental health in adults. It's ideal if you are intending to work – or are already employed – in health care, counselling, social care and related areas.

What you'll study

During this course you'll evaluate, assess, and advance the current understanding of what works in helping adults achieve psychological wellbeing and good mental health. The course will also teach you a range of practical and research-related skills aimed at people intending to work, or who are already employed, in the mental health sector.

As part of the course you'll engage in a piece of consultancy for an external organisation working in the areas of mental health or psychological wellbeing. This affords excellent networking opportunities. Many students also engage in volunteering opportunities in these areas facilitated by the University.

Assessment methods

You will be assessed in a variety of ways and on a modular basis through:

  • assessed essays
  • group / individual presentations
  • book proposals
  • laboratory reports
  • literature reviews

And your research project / dissertation work and your specialist essay work which is written up as an academic article suitable for publication in a peer reviewed academic journal.

Your future career in Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health

Students generally choose the MSc Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health because they wish to pursue a career working in a mental health setting or because they already work in such a setting and hope to improve their prospects of promotion and career progression. You may choose to pursue an academic and / or research career in psychology following graduation (by working as a research assistant or associate, for example, or by studying for a PhD). Psychology graduates with BPS GBC status may also be interested in this course if they are considering doctoral study towards a career as a clinical or counselling psychologist.
