Clinical Applications of Psychology MSc: Course features
What this course offers you
This course has a strong research focus and is taught by researchers who are active in clinical and health psychology.
It also has a strong practical focus – across all modules we emphasise applying the relevant theory and research to clinical practice in mental health. You will also acquire foundation counselling and cognitive behavioural skills.
The dissertation will give you a chance to deepen your knowledge in an area of interest. We will encourage you to conduct research of publishable standards.
We consider both professional issues and current debates in ethics and diversity relevant to practitioners and researchers in mental health. You will learn how to apply ethical principles in both your research and via real or hypothetical clinical case studies.
If you are already in a clinical placement, we will support you in considering relevant empirical evidence and how it may inform your work with the particular client group. For students without a clinical placement we are often able to find a suitable placement for the duration of the course.
