Course summary

This MSc combines theoretical grounding in development and its disorders with practical experience in clinical assessment and diagnosis. You will focus on on dyslexia, developmental language disorder, autism, ADHD, and dyscalculia.

Combining perspectives from cognitive psychology, developmental cognitive neuroscience, and applied clinical and educational practice, you'll look at topical issues such as co-morbidity between disorders, and the implications of cognitive disorders for children’s mental health.

Careers and skills

This MSc will enhance your transferable skills as well as the skills required for careers in a range of industries. For example, you’ll learn a variety of research techniques that can be applied to development and disorders and how to apply them; as well as carrying out extensive independent research. Our graduates go on to complete PhDs typically in psychology or neuropsychology. Others go on to pursue careers in Clinical Psychology, Educational Psychology, Speech Language Therapy or find work as Assistant Psychologists and Research Assistants.

The Department's Employability Coordinator works closely with the University Careers Service, which offers our students an additional range of career and recruitment events, skills sessions and one-to-one advice.
