Course summary

This course focuses on the social, emotional and cognitive development of children and is designed for graduates and practising psychologists who wish to acquire a specialism in child development. The School of Psychology has a growing reputation as a centre of expertise in developmental psychology, with research interests in cognitive development, language acquisition, autism, motor development, human-animal interaction, child safety and injury prevention, cultural contexts of development. Research in the School is finding immediate real-world applications. For example, studies into the misinterpretation of canine facial expressions have led to a prevention tool to reduce instances of children being bitten by dogs. You may have access to the specialist Lincoln Infant and Child Development Lab, which is equipped with facilities for preferential looking, listening and eye-tracking as well as a motor lab and research facilities for examining comparative cognitive development. Career and Personal Development: As specialists in developmental psychology, graduates may work in a range of areas that value expertise in child development including hospital and care settings, schools, social services and children’s services. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
