We have 89 Masters Degrees in Child Psychology

Why study a Masters in Child Psychology?

Child Psychology is key in understanding the way youngsters grow and develop in the ways that they do. By understanding the development of children from a psychological perspective, professionals can gain access to a great deal of insight about the causes of certain developmental defects, and also understand what is considered healthy (or normal) development.

For example, you might explore how impairments such as blindness, learning difficulties and behavioural issues hold implications for children as they grow into adolescents. Within this, you might explore how the family unit and other social factors may influence how well a child deals with these impairments.

Careers in this field are extremely broad, with traditional routes into work including positions in social work, paediatric nursing and teaching. Other roles may include policy-making or administration on behalf of governing bodies, regulatory authorities or charities.
