Course summary

Overview

A rapidly expanding field worldwide, Psychological Well-being evaluates the factors that characterise and influence mental health and wellbeing, nurturing your understanding of the cultural, social and economic contexts in which they develop.

Many of our experienced academic team have expertise in the specific domains of wellbeing, which are embedded within the course, including developmental psychology, occupational psychology, health psychology, clinical psychology, counselling psychology and cognitive/biological psychology.

Benefit from occasional contributions from practitioners and academics working within a variety of wellbeing related settings such as work, education and health. Teaching facilities include dedicated laboratory and practical work areas, an observation suite and a vision research laboratory.

Completion of the course will lead to a number of career opportunities worldwide, including research, teaching and those within the caring professions. It also facilitates career development and progression. Other students might use the course as a stepping stone to specialised PhD study.
