Course content

This MSc in Developmental Science combines research methods training with in-depth study of the subject as a whole. It will allow you to gain hands-on experience of key research methods such as eye-tracking, EEG, NIRS, and other experimental techniques used for working with infants and children.

You will attain an in-depth understanding of human development and also develop the skills needed to prepare research proposals and undertake your own original research, analysis and synthesis. In addition, you will acquire transferable skills in oral and written communication, and in the analysis of complex data sets.

One of our programme’s key strengths is the opportunity to experience modern psychological research methods first hand. This includes a research placement, tailored to the specific skills you need to further your research goals.

The programme’s core modules will give you a solid grounding in the subject’s key areas. Optional modules can be chosen according to your specific interests.

The course builds to a substantial piece of Master’s research, undertaken with the supervision of active researchers in the field. Before applying, you are welcome to contact our academics to discuss the topics you’re interested in researching.
