The Master in Cognitive Psychology in Health Communication, jointly offered by Università della Svizzera italiana and the Faculty of Psychology of Vita-Salute San Raffaele University of Milan (UNISR), presents a new joint Master's programme through training in cognitive psychology, neuroscience and communication. The programme focuses on the intersection between the theoretical bases of cognitive psychology and those of communication applied to the context of health.
Students who choose this specialization will get a strong biological, methodological and statistical training, acquiring also knowledge in management. The specialization will familiarize students with the latest research and practice in cognitive psychology and provide a modern preparation to lead and influence change in health in today's diverse communities.
After successful completion of their studies, the students will obtain the "Master of Science degree in Cognitive Psychology in Health Communication" from Università della Svizzera italiana and from Vita-Salute San Raffaele University.
The Master will award students with a joint degree in Psychology, meaning that the degree is officially recognized by both education systems, the Italian and the Swiss one.
The degree does not automatically grant the right to practice as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in Switzerland and Italy. Admissions to specialization programs will be subjected to the relevant Cantonal, Federal and State regulations and to the individual school admission requirements.
