Summary

Students study wellbeing and optimal human functioning for individuals, groups, communities and organisations; applicants study the knowledge, skills and applications of positive psychology. A heavy emphasis is placed on supporting the use and application of the new knowledge and skills through personally-chosen projects that also form the basis of assessments; the programme covers primary theories and research in positive psychology, and their inter-relationships. The course provides structured opportunities through which students may explore and apply positive psychology in personally chosen areas; there are visiting experts in topics such as personal strengths, positive emotions, resilience and the processes and journey of human change.

Studying our MSc Applied Positive Psychology programme can be life-changing. Our course aims to equip you to master positive psychology skills that will help you to flourish. Discover the nature of happiness and what makes people thrive. Whatever work you do, whether you're a teacher, counsellor, coach, or team leader, Applied Positive Psychology can help you find ways to improve your own wellbeing and performance, as well as that of others.

We don't assume our students have a background in Psychology but we will ask you what goals you have for undertaking the programme and how you wish to use the subject in your life. If you can answer these questions and also have energy and focus in what you study, we'll then be able to give you the grounding and skills you need to apply your knowledge in a critically reflective way.

Previous students have said what a positive impact the course has had on their lives and described the experience as one of personal growth and transformation that influences personal as well as career opportunities.
