Course content

This programme will help you to develop an in-depth understanding of current issues in child and adolescent psychology and provides a robust training in advanced statistics and research methods which will prepare you for a research career or for further postgraduate study. There is a practical and applied element, and a work placement, and you will have the opportunity to conduct a substantial piece of research in child and adolescent psychology.

The individual piece of research on a topic of their choice in child and adolescent psychology will be conducted under the supervision of a member of staff. This research will be informed by their learning on the other courses and will require students to produce a piece of research of publishable quality. As part of their research project students are required to produce a research poster which they must defend at a conference, plus a final project report.
