University Master's degree in General Health Psychology
The master’s degree provides students with professional training in the evaluation and treatment of psychpathological and health problems. The training takes its inspiration from the practicing scientific model, which argues that effective professional training involves the acquisition of both practical (applied) and research competences. The master's degree has been designed to provide applied and advanced training across a range of core concepts, procedures, techniques and approaches that enable students to work as professionals in the field of General Health Psychology. The master's degree content also aims to provide basic and applied research training and the critical and reflective capacities which are essential to improving professional practice.
