Course Introduction

The BSc (Hons) Child Psychology is one of the few undergraduate psychology programmes in the UK designed specifically for students who wish to focus their studies on the development of thinking and behaviour throughout the lifespan, while at the same time gaining a degree that is accredited by the British Psychology Society, making them eligible to apply for further training in any area of psychology.

Course Modules

In addition to modules that introduce the core areas of psychology (biological foundations, cognitive psychology, social psychology, developmental psychology, individual differences, conceptual and historical issues in psychology, and research methods), BSc Child Psychology students take specialised modules on applied child psychology, developmental difficulties and lifespan development. Our programmes are distinctive in their applied approach to psychology and benefit from a strong professional emphasis. This approach, combined with a comprehensive skills curriculum, develops students’ transferable skills and equips them with a competitive edge in the employment market.
