Course content

Do you want to work towards a clinical career with children or take the next step towards a doctorate? Gain an advanced academic understanding of developmental disorders and childhood mental health. Investigate causes, assessment, classification and treatment.

Our course provides you with a strong foundation for research and will complement your professional clinical training. You’ll gain a comprehensive theoretical knowledge of the field, as well as the practical ability to design, run and evaluate clinical research programmes.

Our course is ideal if you want to pursue a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, a career working with children or in other clinical settings. You’ll be highly employable in many research environments. You’re also in the perfect position to continue your academic career and move up to our Psychology PhD.

Specialist modules focus on diagnosis and treatment of different conditions, developmental psychopathology (including causes and impacts) and the broader issues surrounding psychological research.
You’ll also train in quantitative and qualitative research methods, including infant observation, assessment and diagnostic interviewing, neuroimaging (electroencephalography and magnetoencephalography) and neuropsychological assessment.
This leads up to your final year dissertation project, which will involve significant independent research with the guidance and support of our expert staff.
Please note that this course does not include clinical work with children and neither does it constitute professional training (e.g. training in clinical psychology).
