Course summary

You’ll study the discipline of education but with psychological insight. Further postgraduate study could enable employment opportunities in educational psychology, child psychology, therapy occupations and counselling. This degree will develop your understanding of how people develop and learn throughout their lives, as well as the nature of knowledge and understanding, using psychological theories and perspectives. You will also study how education contributes to society, politics and economics. Each year provides a key focus that will lend to you thinking as an educationalist with an emphasis on psychology. In Year One, the course provides a solid grounding for understanding the multi and interdisciplinary nature of education. Multidisciplinary in the way that it draws from Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy and Politics, and interdisciplinary in the way that it includes specialised educational fields of study. In Year Two, the course will cement your theoretical knowledge as you think about how your own research could contribute to the field of education. You will also develop your understanding of social psychology and the application of psychology in educational contexts. Year Two is dedicated to placement activity. Placements can be in a wide range of educational settings, locally, regionally, nationally or internationally.In Year Three, you’ll conduct research for your dissertation and continue to gain experience and develop a portfolio. You’ll also explore how different behaviours are supported and understood in educational contexts.
