How You Study

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisors, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

A PhD is awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic to a group of academics. You are also expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.

Career and Personal Development

Research at postgraduate level provides the opportunity to advance your knowledge and can provide an excellent foundation for a career in academia or research, as well as in senior roles within psychology.

The MSc Developmental Psychology focuses on the social, emotional and cognitive development of children and is designed for graduates and practising psychologists who wish to acquire a specialism in child development.

The School of Psychology has a growing reputation as a centre of expertise in developmental psychology, with research interests in cognitive development, language acquisition, autism, motor development, human-animal interaction, child safety and injury prevention, cultural contexts of development. Research in the School is finding immediate real-world applications. For example, studies into the misinterpretation of canine facial expressions have led to a prevention tool to reduce instances of children being bitten by dogs.

You may have access to the specialist Lincoln Babylab, which is equipped with facilities for preferential looking, listening and eye-tracking as well as a motor lab and research facilities for examining comparative cognitive development.

This programme is designed to prepare students for a career which requires a solid understanding of research methods in specific areas of Psychology. Read more
This programme is designed to prepare students for a career which requires a solid understanding of research methods in specific areas of Psychology.

To support this aim, students have the opportunity to develop a firm scientific basis in psychological research methods, not only with the aim of making it possible to understand the state of the art, but also with the aim of making it possible to develop original research ideas, independently work out such ideas, employ rigorous methodological standards, and disseminate results and conclusions at the highest possible level.

What distinguishes this programme is its focus on learning about applied research methods and techniques in different areas of Psychological research, and the opportunity for students to put together their own programme of study by choosing between several module options. Students are asked to write up their Thesis project as a paper (6,000-8,000 words) that can in principle be submitted to a peer reviewed journal at a later date.

Days Taught

Teaching is predominantly delivered on a Monday and Tuesday, although students should expect to attend a minimal number of sessions on other days of the week.

How You Study

The training programme is designed to comprise research skills and methods, scientific, ethical and philosophical underpinnings, and research designs typically used when aiming to understand psychological structures and processes. The Thesis project as well as module option choices provide the opportunity for students to develop a specialist knowledge-base in a particular area of Psychology.

Students are asked to choose six optional modules as part of this programme. A list of these optional modules can be found in the Modules tab.

The composition and delivery for the course breaks down differently for each module and may for example include lectures, seminars, workshops, practicals, independent study research and one-to-one learning. Students are expected to engage in at least 2-3 hours of independent self study for each contact hour.

How You Are Assessed

Assessments vary from research proposals to seminar diaries, research reports, take home exams, essays and presentations.

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.
