Course Content

Course content

The Master of Science, Psychology of Child & Adolescent Development employs the scientific approach to facilitate our understanding of age-linked development of human behaviour and thought. The programme offers students the unique opportunity to study the psychology of social, emotional and cognitive development from birth through early adulthood. The subject matter includes developmental, emotional and behavioural problems, relationships in childhood and adolescence, and cognitive development in the context of legal, health and educational settings. Students also receive advanced training in psychological research methods and, under supervision, complete a research project relevant to human development.

Course structure

Full-time students will take two 30-credit modules per semester, followed by a 60-credit dissertation in the spring and summer.

Part-time students take one module in each semester in years 1 and 2, and undertake the dissertation in year 3.
