Course content

Designed in consultation with practitioners and relevant agencies, this programme will help give you the specialist skills and understanding employers are looking for and boost your career prospects in this field.

Our MSc in Psychosocial Interventions is designed for students interested in developing skills and knowledge for the assessment and solution-focused management of people with certain physical and mental health conditions.

It will be of particular relevance to students with a background in the social sciences, mental health or nursing.

A background in psychology is desirable as you will have a strong foundation in mental health problems and research methods, but it is not essential.

It is also suitable for practitioners in health, mental health and the forensic equivalent (including all aspects of health and justice) who are currently working with people benefitting from such interventions. There is also clear potential for applicants to be multi-disciplinary and to come from public or private settings.

We offer flexible study modes and, after passing the relevant number of modules, you can choose to step off the programme to gain awards of PGCert and PGDip, or continue to the full MSc respectively.

You can also choose to study over two or three years.
