Course summary

Overview

This new Master's programme examines advanced concepts in psychology related to health and wellbeing. It is suitable for you if you have completed an undergraduate psychology programme, or have a degree in an allied subject.

It offers a diverse portfolio of modules, covering areas including:

  • theory and practical applications of clinical psychology
  • neuropsychology
  • health psychology

Teaching is delivered by staff with extensive research expertise, and you’ll have the opportunity to work on new and ongoing research within the Division of Psychology at the University of Bradford.

The programme is ideal if you want to build a career in clinical psychology, or are looking to work in the health and social care sector. It also provides an excellent route into doctorate level study, and could enable you to undertake a PhD.

Learning and assessment

Teaching on the programme includes lectures, small group seminars, workshops and laboratory-based practicals. For instance, during lectures you will be encouraged to actively engage with the learning materials by taking part in group discussions, debates and problem solving activities.

In practical sessions you will take part in a number of activities; for example in Advanced Psychological Research Methods you will process and analyse quantitative and qualitative data, whereas in Topics and Theoretical Issues in Clinical Psychology practical sessions will involve taking part in experiential tasks to better understand clinical psychology.

Throughout all the modules, you will be encouraged to work collaboratively in groups and individually to enhance your learning.

Modules are assessed by a variety of means, including:
