Course summary

The Psychology and Child Development degree will provide you with the essential skills and knowledge to pursue a career working with children and young people in psychology, education or the caring professions. You’ll learn about how psychology shapes who we are and how children behave and mature.  You will gain an understanding of how children grow, behave and mature differently. With a firm academic grounding in key elements of psychology, you will cover areas such as behavioural patterns, brain development, mental health diagnosis, and treatment. Our multi-million-pound Science Centre is home to cutting edge facilities such as cognitive research cubicles, observation and counselling suites, IT labs and psychophysiology equipment. The BSc (Hons) Psychology programme is accredited with the British Psychological Society (BPS) meaning that successful completion of this programme (with a minimum of a 2:2 degree) will enable you to claim Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) after graduation, which is the first stage towards becoming a professional psychologist. The course emphasises the application of psychological knowledge to everyday life and experience. We will teach you about the relevance of general psychology and child psychology to a wide range of contemporary issues and you will learn through a mix of lectures, seminars, tutorials, debates and practicals. As well as subject skills and knowledge, you will develop highly transferrable skills that are valued by employers in communication, problem solving, interpersonal skills, numeracy, teamwork, critical thinking, computing and independent learning. You will be provided with opportunities to prepare you for employment. Many graduates from our Psychology and Child Development degree have completed further professional training to become clinical psychologists, educational psychologists, counselling psychologists and health psychologists. Others have applied their expertise and transferable skills to teaching, welfare, health and caring professions.
