Course summary

This multidisciplinary course aims not only to develop your knowledge and understanding, but also to ensure that you develop the skills, attitudes and confidence to support, educate, nurture, and advocate for children, young people and families in your work.Childhood Studies considers how children from birth to 18 years of age are viewed, and the factors that influence how they develop, learn and grow. Through studying Applied Psychology you gain an in-depth understanding of the applications of psychology within education, as well as the influence of diversity upon development, learning and behaviour.This interdisciplinary course is unique in that it primarily focuses on Childhood Studies with interlinked modules in Applied Psychology. In both disciplines, theory and practice will be actively applied and brought together through a number of tailored placement opportunities and community projects that aim to widen your experience and skill set, and support career choice and progression. The placements will offer an opportunity for students to work with a chosen professional and gain insight into their roles and responsibilities. A range of external and internal professionals will contribute to your course, widening your understanding of the influence different professionals can have on children and families.Research projects form a key aspect of the course in Years 2 and 3 and will allow you to follow your own lines of interest and enquiry. These can be targeted towards specific career routes, allowing you to widen your experiences in the field.University Centre Shrewsbury (UCS) offers a highly personalised approach to study, with small groups and bespoke support from expert tutors and other members of the UCS team.
