Master in General Health Psychology

Master's thesis

The master’s thesis can be done in one of these three modalities:

A. Research work

In this modality the student is expected to carry out an empirical research that they themselves have defined, designed and carried out. For research works that cannot be developed fully due to their large scope, a pilot study or a complete approach will be accepted

This modality can take the form of a theoretical-scientific review, the aim of which will be to investigate the current state of a subject or problem related to clinical psychology or general health.

B. Professional innovation project

In this modality, the objective is that the student develops or intervenes in a new design for a treatment programme which will be either innovative or a variation of an existing programme to be applied to a new group, to broaden or redesign the existing protocol, to contribute to the evaluation tools involved, to intervene in the content and design of the sessions of the programme or to create therapeutic materials. It can also be offered as a complementary programme to a therapeutic intervention.

C. A work on clinical cases

From the point of view of General Health Psychology, studies of cases are a hugely useful methodology since they enable psychologists to systematically analyse and communicate the link between the theoretical and practical knowledge applied. In this modality, the student must make an in-depth analysis of at least 3 clinical cases they have either been directly involved in or they were able to observe during their placement.
