Course summary

Overview

How do our brains work? Is our behaviour influenced by our genes, our environment or both? Psychology gives you a fascinating insight into the factors that influence how people think, feel and behave. Child development psychology is a fascinating specialist area, focused on typical and atypical child development.

Employability

As well as enhancing your understanding of human behaviour and thought processes, this course will help you become a more persuasive communicator - a desirable skill for employers.

During the final year of the Child Development Psychology course, you can specialise in typical and atypical child development, focussing on conditions such as autism, Down syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or Tourette's syndrome.

Your career

With an accredited degree and an appropriate postgraduate qualification you could go on to be a chartered psychologist in health, clinical, forensic, child and educational or occupational psychology. You’re also equipped for a career in counselling, teaching, the probation and courts services, market research, HR or business – there’s no such thing as a traditional career path for psychology graduates.

If you do go on to become a chartered psychologist, your everyday duties would vary depending on the speciality. An occupational psychologist works to maximise employee performance and increase job satisfaction; a clinical psychologist makes positive changes in clients’ lives.
