Psychology is a science that has as its central theme the study of human and animal behaviour as well as the underlying factors influencing behaviour. According to the opinions of members of the international union of psychological science, psychology is concerned with improving the quality of life. In order to achieve these ends psychologists work in a broad range of topics (this explains the wide range of psychological sub-disciplines). This course will extend student knowledge at the basic level on how society functions, children learn, people behave or misbehave, grow, and how the underlying mechanisms in co-operation with other forces (e.g., environment) explain these phenomena.
Graduates of the MSc in Counselling Psychology programme may pursue careers as psychologists, counsellors in hospitals, community centres, schools and businesses, therapists and more.
The title Master of Science in Counselling Psychology is awarded directly by the University of York.
