The Mental Health (Youth/Interdisciplinary) MSc is a growing interdisciplinary programme, bringing together several disciplines ranging from psychology, sociology and social policy to medicine, philosophy, and education. Since the programme began in 2020, it has had a total of 67 graduates, with the majority of students graduating with either a merit or distinction.
There are 62 students currently enrolled in the 2022/3 cohort. This academic year saw the introduction of a new optional module in “Translational Cognitive Neuroscience” reflecting the programme’s expansion of interdisciplinary perspectives in mental health.
