Course summary

The Psychology and Early Childhood Studies degree offers a fascinating and stimulating course of academic study which investigates the mind and children in social context. In psychology here you will explore and examine the interaction between mind and behaviour, the nature of the unconscious, the functioning of memory, individual behaviour in social situations, prejudice and altruism. Psychology with us equips students with a thorough grounding in each of the major fields: social psychology, developmental psychology, biological psychology, and cognitive psychology. The focus of the teaching and learning of psychology here is on allowing students to explore fundamental questions about human behaviour, while learning about the importance of research, evidence collection and adherence to ethical codes. Early Childhood Studies takes a multi-disciplinary approach and offers a fascinating and stimulating course of academic study. This means it includes educational, health, welfare, psychological, sociological, legal, philosophical, political and economic perspectives. The primary focus is children from birth to eight years but it also covers conception through to when a child is approximately eleven years of age (the natural completion of the primary education stage).Graduates have begun careers in probation, arrest support, legal aid counselling, social work, careers advice, refugee council, behavioural support, assistant psychologist, health promotion, bank management, retail management, and prison service. Employment in an early years setting (management, supervisory or support positions), development or Family Support Work in the private, voluntary and statutory sector. Many graduates opt to pursue further academic qualifications such as MA or MSc degrees. Teaching – Primary PGCE or SCITT programmes.
