Course summary

**Overview**Discover how children develop both cognitively and socially. On this programme you’ll combine a strong core of psychology studies with developmental perspectives on cognition and behaviour. You'll have access to excellent facilities and cutting-edge equipment for teaching and research, and as you gain an in-depth understanding of human psychology you'll develop a range of key skills valued by employers. You'll benefit from research-led teaching in a balance of small and larger groups. In your third year, you’ll have the opportunity to get hands-on experience, build contacts, and explore potential roles and career routes by spending a year on a work-based placement. **About This Course**On this course you’ll explore both typical and atypical cognitive development. That means you’ll cover issues such as autistic spectrum disorder, ADHD, Williams Syndrome, giftedness and developmental psychopathology. This course is ideal if you are interested in a career in child and adolescent psychology, educational psychology, teaching, child health and welfare, and parenting and family support services. The theoretical and research components of the degree will also give you a strong foundation for progressing to postgraduate study in developmental science. In your fourth year, you’ll enjoy access to our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, including the developmental dynamics lab and a fully-immersive virtual reality suite. You’ll also have the opportunity to demonstrate all you have learned by implementing an individual research project of your own. You'll be able to choose from a range of psychology modules according to your interests, be they broad or specific. You’ll also have the chance to experience topics you may not have come across before. If you discover a new passion or interest during your first year, you’ll have the option to change to a different Psychology pathway, ensuring you’re on the right degree for you. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
