Study type Taught


We often talk of 'a positive frame of mind' or 'looking on the bright side'. This Master's in Positive Psychology is your opportunity to take that to a whole new level. Our modular postgraduate programme takes you deep into the concepts and theories of positive psychology and supports your theoretical and research-based contributions to the subject.

The University of Bolton's Master's degree in Positive Psychology takes you on an immersive journey into this relatively new subject area within psychology. The programme's modular nature allows you to take a flexible and fairly autonomous approach to learning, theorising, reflecting and researching.

You'll get the chance to learn, debate and critically evaluate positive psychology's new techniques and research. You'll also have the opportunity to evaluate developing theories and applications in positive psychology, supported all the way by experienced and enthusiastic teaching staff with an excellent knowledge base. We offer expert training in research techniques, helping you to conceptualise, design and implement an independent research project that explores new ideas and approaches at the forefront of this increasingly popular subject.

Successfully completing this MSc in Positive Psychology should put you in a highly favourable position for seeking employment in relevant care professions and educational institutions, and for securing a place on a specialist psychology-related higher degree or doctorate programme.
