Course content

This Master's degree will give you an understanding of the methods and findings from contemporary health and from affective and clinical psychological sciences, including applied neuroscience. The emphasis is on mixed-method approaches and we will support you in developing a cross-disciplinary approach to appraising research and carrying out an independent research project.

The course is designed for graduates with a background in psychology, neuroscience and health sciences, who want to deepen their understanding of cutting-edge contemporary research in health - including health psychology, applied neuroscience and neuropsychology - and the factors contributing to physical and mental health outcomes.
