Investigate the social and health-related aspects of behavioural regulation.

One of the most important challenges that people face in modern life is to control their own and others' behaviour. We have to resist impulses and to cope with several social and health threats, and our decisions often deeply affect our own and others' lives. The Master's programme Social and Health Psychology teaches you how to analyse these and other fascinating topics related to the control of human behaviour and how to design experiments to study them.

The programme offers access to research facilities designed to study cognition, affect and behaviour in social and health-related context. We also have equipment to study automatic responses such as eye-movements, facial EMG and cardiovascular activity. Collaboration with the Neuroscience and Cognition programme provides facilities such as EEG and fMRI to study the neurological grounding of the regulation of social and health behaviour.
