Accredited by the British Psychological Society, this degree combines a strong core of psychology with developmental perspectives on cognition and behaviour. Like our other programmes, the degree is underpinned by teaching in core psychology areas. Through advanced optional choices which focus on how children develop both cognitively and socially, the BSc Developmental Psychology allows you to focus on the developmental science subfield of psychology. We place an emphasis on the exploration of normative and atypical cognitive development, meaning you’ll cover issues such as autistic spectrum disorder, ADHD, Williams Syndrome, giftedness and developmental psychopathology. This course is ideal if you are interested in a career in areas such as child and adolescent psychology, educational psychology, teaching, child health and welfare, and parenting and family support services. The theoretical and research components of the degree will also give you a strong foundation for progressing to postgraduate study in developmental science.
