Hi there, I've got a question which I don't seem to find any good answer to anywhere so I'll give it a shot here.

I recently graduated from my bachelor's degree in psychology. During my studies I developed an interest for how technology can be used in clinical psychology and health behaviors. My research papers during the bachelor's degree also investigated this topic.

However it seems like a quite new field and I'm unsure what to choose for graduate school. My dream job in the future would be to do research in the field and develop systems/apps/online applications that can be used to enhance clinical psychology and promote health behavior.

I guess that there isn't a perfect match out there, however I've been looking around a bit and the closest options I've found are Interaction Design, Human Computer Interaction or Media Psychology. I've also been looking at Clinical Psychology but I guess you'd miss the whole technical part then.

All suggestions, advises or inputs are more than welcome!

Thanks in advance

I know of people that do this research in health psychology, and likely there will be people in clinical psychology. There isn't going to be a specialized masters just for this topic - find a researcher who does research in this field and approach them to do a phd or masters- you could just to a research masters in this topic. Research masters typically have one term of basic research skills and optional taught modules, and the last two terms you can spend doing research in a topic you enjoy.
