Developmental and Educational Psychology are combined in this single honours BSc course to provide you with useful knowledge and experience if you are intending to work in educational psychology, clinical psychology, teaching or research. This course offers you a unique springboard for further study or future training and will help you to develop a range of transferable skills including analytical and research skills.
There are two clear strands to the degree. The first strand covers general psychology in areas such as social, cognitive and biological psychology which underpin the specialist developmental and educational work. The second strand is comprised of specific developmental and educational modules. There will be work-based learning built into a module taken in each year of your course. You are also encouraged to seek additional work experience through paid employment or voluntary work.
If you are wishing to pursue a career in teaching, educational psychology or education related fields then this course will help you develop your knowledge and skills that can be transferred to these areas. However, you would not be restricted to career choices in these areas. The degree still enables you to access the full range of careers available to those studying the general Psychology course. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered membership, provided that you meet the minimum standard of a second class honours in your degree.
