Our new interdisciplinary MA in Psychology and Education will appeal if you’re interested in Special Educational Needs (SEN), disability and individual differences. It’s aimed at those already working or wanting to work in statutory and non-statutory organisations, schools and the voluntary sector.
The course will provide insight and knowledge of contemporary topics in psychology and education. It particularly emphasises developing the skills to understand and communicate psychological research and its implications for education, including the social context of children and their families.
You’ll benefit from studying modules co-taught by the Centre for Education Studies and the Psychology Department. You’ll also take a further module devised specially for the course by the Centre for Educational Development, Appraisal and Research, our internationally-renowned research centre for educational and psychological issues.
*Please note that the course does not offer British Psychological Society (BPS) accreditation, so is suitable for you if you already have Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership from the BPS, or if you do not intend to progress to becoming a chartered psychologist.
