Course content

The MSc Health and Neuropsychology course is designed to draw together associations between health psychology and neuropsychology. To achieve this aim, the course enables students to develop core knowledge and critically reflect upon key issues related to behaviour change, long-term conditions, neuropsychological assessment, and biological mechanisms. Students will also consider professional and organisational issues within health practice. Importantly, the course aims to develop the research skills of all students, allowing them to apply theoretical knowledge to the design and evaluation of interventions related to the development of health psychology.

The MSc Health and Neuropsychology course will appeal to students who wish to build upon their existing knowledge of health and neuropsychology. Upon completion, candidates may wish to apply knowledge within a professional context, or pursue a professional doctorate or PhD.
