Educational Psychology - Manchester Metropolitan University

How do labels affect children’s identity? How does our individuality affect the way we learn a subject? Do our emotions alter our ability to learn? On our three-year course, you’ll explore how we learn and how the way our minds work affect our ability to learn. You’ll learn about the philosophies, sociological theories and policies that have helped to shape our education system. Some of the themes you’ll usually study include why we employ different strategies in teaching children and young people and how education can be a tool to promote social justice. You’ll also have an introduction to psychology (including cognitive, social and biological psychology), so that you understand the diverse areas the field covers. To help you understand ethics and the influence of external factors on the way children and adults learn, we’ll usually teach you through films, literature and contemporary media sources (such as social media advertising). It’s important that you assess your own opinions on ethics too, so you’ll spend time exploring your personal thoughts. Please note: An application for accreditation has been submitted to The British Psychological Society. **Features and Benefits** - **Develop your skills**- You will develop a range of transferable skills that will prepare you for employment within a range of services for children and young people - **The Individual Differences**: Working with Children and Families unit- This unit allows you to gain insights into working with children and families in other contexts that complement your academic studies and enable you to demonstrate the skills required for employment in the sector - **Outstanding facilities**- You will be based at the state-of-the-art Brooks Building
