Behaviour and social context can have a significant impact on health
and it is the role of the health psychologist to examine this impact
and identify any links between the two.
The Health Psychology MSc provides a thorough grounding in the
theories, practice and application of health psychology.
A distinctive feature of the course at Coventry University is the
focus on the practical application of health psychology. We like to
teach Health Psychology as a discipline with real world
application, not just as a dry academic subject. This is exemplified
by the ‘Professional Skills’ module which is mainly taught by
practitioners who currently work in applied health psychology
settings. Our guest speakers help to illustrate the variety of career
paths open to health psychologists and as some are graduates of our
course. This also highlights the success of our graduates who have
gone on to work in careers relating to health psychology.
The course is divided into four theory modules covering the key areas
of the British Psychological Society Knowledge Base for Health
Psychology, a module on ‘Advanced Research Methods in Psychology’ a
module on ‘Professional Practice’ and a dissertation.
Graduates go on to further related study eg, Stage Two Health
Psychology training, PhD or D.Clin. Employment options chosen by past
graduates include jobs directly related to health psychology such as
health promotion, research in health psychology or work within a
health care setting.
