New technologies will inevitably change the ways in which we approach healthcare. Can we promote healthier lifestyles through social media or smart apps?
By studying how our minds, our health, and technology all interact, you will learn to answer these questions. In this dynamic and fast-moving field of study, you will use psychological principles, integrate them with the perspective of stakeholders develop interventions or policy, or conduct research that really matters. The UT is at the cutting edge of technological innovations in the health sector, and in the Health Psychology & Technology specialisation, you will study how next-generation, persuasive, technologies can be applied for improving (mental) health, adaptation to disease or health care. You will gain the skills you need to be a Health Psychology professional in today’s digitalised world of digital society. With the interdisciplinary abilities and the practical proficiency gained, you will build up a strong portfolio to present to employers when you graduate.
This specialisation consists of four obligatory courses (20EC) and one elective course (5EC). The track will be completed with a master’s thesis and internship (35EC). The internship (10EC) is optional. When an internship is possible the student conducts a master’s thesis of 25EC. When a student does not go on an internship a master’s thesis of 35EC is conducted.
