The Master’s degree - MSc Clinical and Community Psychology, at Metropolitan College focuses on the person’s relations with the community and society in general, and it is a combination of scientific, theoretical and clinical knowledge. The objective of the programme is to understand, predict and relieve psychological stress and psychological dysfunctions.
Professional Community Psychologists seek to understand the quality of life of persons, communities and societies, aiming to improve quality of life, promote health and individual development through research and action. Community Psychology makes use of various theories both from within and outside Psychology, in order to analyse crucial issues of communities, the relations between them and the behaviours of persons against them. Despite the fact that clinical psychologists also engage in research, education and counselling, the main cores of practice of Community Psychology are psychological assessment and psychotherapy.
The aim of the MSc in Clinical and Community Psychology is to provide the theoretical and technical knowledge and experience from the main clinical and community applications of the science of Psychology. It combines theoretical lessons with clinical practice and research. It provides high-quality, modern theoretical training, practice and research in clinical and community psychology, as well as training, focusing mainly on historic, social, political and cultural factors that affect the application of science.
