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. Enhance your studies by spending a year abroad. All of our psychology degrees have a variant that includes spending your third year abroad before returning to UEA for your final year. While you’re away you will be encouraged to take modules that relate to your personal interests and career goals. These might be in psychology or in other disciplines. A year abroad is a unique, fulfilling experience that will help you develop skills coveted by employers. You can choose from a host of partner universities in Europe, North America and Australasia, including the University of California; University of Notre Dame; University of Hawaii at Manoa; Temple University and Vrije University Amsterdam.
