FCH launches new Master's Programs in Psychology

Monday, January 15, 2024 - 18:00

The Faculty of Human Sciences continues to strengthen its academic offerings regarding the second cycle of studies. In the academic year 2024/2025, FCH introduces a new Master's Program, Psychology and Environmental Sustainability, in the context of the growing social and academic relevance of Psychology as a response to the global climate emergency.

This program, specifically designed for the training of psychologists and other professionals in this field, aims to actively prepare them. It seeks to contribute, in their respective fields of work and various activity contexts, to the design and testing of interventions that promote behavioral and/or policy change for environmental sustainability.

Additionally, the Master's Program in Psychology in Wellbeing and Health Promotion will be expanded to include two new specializations: Clinical and Health Psychology and Public Health Psychology.

The specialization in Clinical and Health Psychology is exclusively accessible to holders of a first cycle of studies in Psychology, focusing on promoting knowledge and skills for psychological assessment and intervention with diverse populations in various clinical and health contexts.

On the other hand, the specialization in Public Health Psychology focuses on applying concepts and theoretical models from Health Psychology and Behavioral Sciences. Its purpose is to enhance the adoption and implementation of disease prevention measures, as well as the protection and promotion of health, based on the best available scientific evidence. These measures aim to achieve individual and collective health gains.

Applications for master's programs will open on January 15th. For more information, including the curriculum and additional details, please refer to the Master's programs here.
