Childhood (Psychology) - Nottingham Trent University

This degree provides a solid foundation in the understanding of childhood and an introduction to the psychology of childhood. It will explore aspects of human behaviour and interaction, and help you to understand why and how children may behave as they do. Explore how children learn and develop through their behaviour, cultural perspectives and the effect of the environment. As you develop and broaden your understanding of childhood, you will undertake research enquiries and placement opportunities, enabling you to reflect critically on perspectives of childhood. In each year of the course, you will further develop your understanding of child psychology. You will study the cognitive processes of children, social psychology and its effect on the development of a child, as well as the range of therapies and psychological interventions. The broad range of modules available within this course gives opportunities for you to develop both personally as a learner and professionally by incorporating the world of work and global perspectives into your studies. Key transferable skills are embedded in the modules, and are reinforced whilst working alongside experienced practitioners. You’ll have the opportunity for work-based learning in a variety of setting, including the chance to undertake an international experience. This experience, along with the core modules you will study, will develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of how to work successfully as a practitioner in the childhood sector.
