Mental and physical health are inextricably connected. Health psychologists explore brain—body interactions with a view to improving client wellbeing. This requires advanced psychological skills and clinical expertise.

Our Master of Psychology (Health) is one of only two health psychology degrees currently available in Australia. It provides the professional knowledge needed to practise as a registered psychologist.

You will:

  • Enjoy small class sizes with leading health psychologists and educators.
  • Learn about illness, disease, and the promotion and maintenance of health.
  • Study health care systems and policy.
  • Explore psychological factors that contribute to ill health.
  • Undertake three industry placements totalling over 1000 hours.
  • Network with future employers in mental health, health care and government settings.
Upon successful completion, you’ll be eligible to apply for full registration with the Psychology Board of Australia. You could design public health campaigns to prevent addiction, injury and illness. You might help people manage chronic pain or cope with diagnoses and medical treatments. Perhaps you’ll work to shift individual attitudes, beliefs and behaviours in the clinic. To gain health endorsement, and use the title "Health Psychologist", further postgraduate supervision is required.
