Course summary


Developmental Psychology is the scientific study of how and why individuals change over time, with a focus on infancy, childhood and adolescence. Applying our knowledge of developmental psychology in real world settings is crucial and has positively impacted a variety of sectors including education, health, clinical and social settings.

Why study MSc Developmental Psychology in Action at Middlesex University?

This master's degree will equip you with the skills to engage critically with the core theory and research in developmental psychology and psychopathology, while providing a critical understanding of the relationship between theory, research and practice. You'll gain the skills to work effectively with the developmental population, particularly in teaching learning and education, mental health, health and community settings, and for further postgraduate training.

Focusing on key issues, theories and topical research in relation to the application of developmental psychology to real-world settings, this course is uniquely cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary.

You will benefit from the experience of our dedicated and enthusiastic staff, as well as state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research, including the baby lab (dedicated to infant research), with observation facilities, AV digital support, sound-isolating booth and Tobii eye-tracking.

This programme is ideally suited to those who may wish to extend their research interests to doctoral level or who work in developmental settings. This course also has step-off points at Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate levels.


How can the MSc Developmental Psychology in Action support your career?

With the strong combination of contemporary and applied child psychology, the programme paves the way to a wide range of careers and employment contexts.

It is particularly targeted at individuals wishing to pursue careers with the developmental population, particularly child practitioners, cognitive neuropsychological assessment, mental health services, health and community settings, teaching and education, as well as academic research and other related real-world settings requiring further PG training (e.g. paediatric clinical neuropsychology, PhD).

The programme is designed for students who wish to apply for further PhD studies in Psychology/Human Development, Educational Psychology/Neuroscience or who plan to progress to Clinical Doctoral and Post-Graduate training with a focus on the developmental population.
