On this course, as well as studying general psychology modules, you will specialise in understanding the psychological factors involved in mental and physical health. In clinical psychology, you will study behavioural problems in children, mental illness in adults, and psychological problems in old age. This will include important contemporary issues such as eating disorders and drug misuse. You will analyse not only what causes these problems but also how they can be treated, or, even better, prevented. In health psychology, you will examine the psychological factors that lead some individuals to behave in health-damaging ways, such as eating unhealthy diets, not taking enough exercise, or engaging in unsafe sexual behaviour. You will study what happens when individuals do become ill or disabled, with diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. As well as understanding how things can go wrong, you will analyse how the situation can be improved through psychological interventions. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and provides eligible graduates with Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).
