This MSc is taught by our expert team of psychologists specialising in early childhood development. Its aim is to train you in how to conduct research into child development. This course is suitable for graduates in psychology or related subjects, as well as professionals working with children as part of their continued professional development.
We cover a range of topics, from social and cognitive development to autism and other atypical developmental issues, to the health psychology of infant feeding practices.
Teaching is grounded in practice with input from social psychologists, health psychologists, neuropsychologists and primatologists. As well as a month-long placement, you will also benefit from hands-on learning through our in-house playgroup, which is integral to teaching and research on the MSc.
You’ll be based in a dedicated MSc office at the university. You’ll also have an academic supervisor who support and guides your development, including your research dissertation project.
