Enjoy Personal Development with a Positive Psychology Master's

The science of positive thinking is about improving mental health with a new mindset, a learned optimism that can make people happier, more appreciative, and more resilient. For ambitious psychology graduates looking to increase their skills for the workplace, the field of positive self-image psychology can be a fantastic area to explore.

The University of Bolton’s MSc Positive Psychology course teaches this relatively new branch of psychology, and ensures students get to enjoy both professional and personal development throughout the programme.

Why study a Postgraduate course?
A master’s degree can be a great way of improving your job prospects while also boosting your earning power. A 2020 report by the Higher Education Policy Institute suggests that Postgraduates earn on average 18% more than first degree holders, just six months after graduation.

Not only that, but research expertise developed through a Postgraduate degree can strengthen applications for clinical psychology, meaning a Master of Science (MSc) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) qualification can give you a competitive edge.

In addition to helping you succeed in your chosen field, Postgraduate study can create opportunities for personal growth, giving you a chance to create clear direction, drive and purpose in your work.

What can you do with a Positive Psychology master’s?
Our master’s course is one of the best personal development programmes available to psychology graduates, because it takes you on an immersive journey into one of the newest subfields of this discipline.

On completion of the course, you can move into a number of relevant care professions, or job roles within education, business, healthcare, charities and government agencies. It’s also a stepping stone for those who wish to pursue a psychology-related higher degree or doctorate.

Study in a supportive and friendly environment
