Common sense is one thing. A healthy lifestyle in another. Unhealthy behaviour, stress, or illnesses do not necessarily have their root causes on medical or biological aspects. Psychological and social factors can play an important role as well. During the Bachelor's Programme in Health Psychology at IU, you will learn, among other things, how to develop individual therapies and evaluate evidence-based interventions. You will acquire all necessary fundamentals for a career in clinical, professional, or digital health care.  

The content of the IU Bachelor's programme in Health Psychology is based on the recommendations of the German Central Evaluation Centre for Prevention. In addition to anatomical-medical and social-health fundamentals, you will also acquire interdisciplinary knowledge. Psychological-diagnostic skills for preventing and coping with stress, addiction, and immunological diseases are also an important part of the curriculum. You will then be able to choose to specialise in areas such as health and coaching, M-health, and health management. 

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.

Expert in M-Health intervention

M-Health (mobile health) refers to the use of mobile devices to support the medical context in the area of e-health (electronic health). The mobility that e-health applications brings along provides the benefit of flexibility. As an expert for M-Health interventions, you ensure that care is always patient-driven. You are interested in optimising processes and saving costs. Since M-Health patients actively have access to their own care, the industry is an innovative pacesetter in health and prevention.   

health adviser

What keeps people healthy? This question is the crucial starting point for your work as a health consultant. You primarily work with people who want to maintain their health, avoid risk factors, and prevent diseases. You provide detailed information and advice on healthy lifestyles and develop personalised nutrition and treatment strategies. Advice and measures on how to live a healthier life with the help of current trends, digital media, or gadgets are also part of a health consultant’s know-how. 

Consultant for health and prevention

Promoting health is the most important task in your day-to-day work in this industry. You can work as a consultant, for example for health insurance companies, or in the area of further education and training to create health-promoting working and living conditions by (re)designing structures and processes.
