Course summary

Our 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. On successful completion of study, we will issue one of the following awards dependent on your chosen pathway: BSc (Hons) Psychology and Child Development, BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies - Students who choose not to, or who are unable to, follow an accredited route can transfer to BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies.

Students learn in different ways. To help everyone get the most out of their studies, we teach students through a blend of lectures, seminars, workshops and laboratory practicals. Seminars enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups of around 16-18 students. In addition, you will have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor. You will be taught in first-class learning spaces throughout your course. Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module normally includes practice or ‘formative’ assessments, for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. This includes a range of coursework assessments, such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, final year, independent project and written examinations. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark. 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.
