A rapidly expanding field worldwide, Psychological Well-being evaluates the factors that characterise and influence mental health and wellbeing, nurturing your understanding of the cultural, social and economic contexts in which they develop.
The psychological well-being course is taught by a range of experienced psychologists with a diverse background, including not only psychological well-being, but also areas such as clinical psychology, counselling, and mental health. The teaching team includes academic psychologists as well as those with practitioner experience. Staff in the Division of Psychology are currently undertaking research related to psychological well-being and mental health. Teaching facilities include dedicated laboratory and practical work areas, an observation suite and a vision research laboratory.
Completion of the course will lead to a number of career opportunities worldwide, including research, teaching, and those within the caring professions. It also facilitates career development and progression. Other students might use the course as a stepping stone to specialised PhD study.
Although the course does not culminate in a qualification in Clinical Psychology, its content will be highly relevant to those applying for training in this area, or within related fields such as psychotherapy, counselling or coaching.
