Applied Clinical Psychology MSc

2 years part-time, starting in September 2019

Gain foundation knowledge in clinical psychology theory and practice.

As part of this MSc, you will gain an up-to-date knowledge of clinical psychology theory and practice, including research. You will study different ways of understanding mental health problems in adults and children, and share insights into relevant theories and the latest practice models applicable to the UK.

You will be introduced to the foundation skills of clinical psychology practice, including interviewing, observation and psychometric assessment.

You will also learn about research in healthcare, looking at issues such as research design, governance and ethical considerations before going on to conduct your own piece of research.

Studying clinical psychology at Bath means you will be joining our leading Department of Psychology. The research interests of our members span a broad range of clinically relevant topics, including ageing, common mental health problems, psychosis, autism, eating disorders, persistent physical symptoms, child maltreatment and trauma amongst others.

You will leave this course with:

  • excellent research skills that can be applied to primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare settings
  • foundation knowledge of clinical psychology approaches, theories and models
  • a strong foundation for further postgraduate training in clinical psychology or work as an assistant psychologist

This course is intended for psychology graduates interested in careers as practitioners or researchers. It will also appeal to current health service professionals with a degree in psychology or a related discipline, who wish to enhance their skills and knowledge.

Graduate prospects

Studying this course will set you up with the knowledge and professional skills required to move into a range of health service and research careers. It is particularly good preparation for work as an assistant psychologist, and a foundation for further postgraduate training or research in clinical psychology.

This course is not professionally accredited and will not provide you with a licence to practise.

Course structure

This course lasts 2 years. It starts in September 2019 and ends in 2021. Induction week starts on 23 September 2019.


Occasionally we make changes to our programmes in response to, for example, feedback from students, developments in research and the field of studies, and the requirements of accrediting bodies. You will be advised of any significant changes to the advertised programme, in accordance with our Terms and Conditions.

Units

Part-time students will typically take either two or three units in each semester. The actual balance will be flexible subject to agreement by the Director of Studies.

You will study units across three themes. A more detailed course structure will be available from January 2019.

Compulsory course units

These compulsory units are currently being studied by our students, or are proposed new units.

Theme 1

You will study research methods, including research design, quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis and evaluation of clinical research.

Theme 2

You will study theoretical approaches to conceptualising mental health problems. You will learn about factors which affect mental health, psychological theories of emotional disorders and the evidence underpinning these.

Theme 3
