Developmental Psychology with Placement Year at University of East Anglia UEA - UCAS

Course summary

Overview Developmental psychology is the study of how we develop cognitively, emotionally and socially, particularly during infancy, childhood and adolescence. On this programme, you’ll combine a strong core of psychology studies with developmental perspectives on cognition and behaviour. You’ll explore a range of theoretical ideas and research evidence, learning to critically evaluate the latest psychological theories and develop ideas of your own. You’ll benefit from research-led teaching in a balance of small and larger groups. UEA’s School of Psychology has been ranked 14th overall for research quality in Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience in the Times Higher Education REF 2021 Analysis. Throughout your time here you’ll be supported by your individual academic advisor, as well as having access to the University’s Learning Enhancement and Wellbeing Teams. On this course, you’ll explore both typical and atypical cognitive development. That means you’ll cover issues such as autistic spectrum disorder, ADHD, Williams Syndrome, giftedness and developmental psychopathology. You’ll be able to choose from a range of psychology modules and have the chance to experience topics you may not have come across before. If you discover a new passion or interest during your first year, you’ll have the option to change to a different Psychology pathway, ensuring you’re on the right degree for you. In your third year, you'll have the opportunity to get hands-on experience, build contacts, and explore potential roles and career routes by spending a year on a work-based placement. In your final year, you’ll enjoy access to our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, including the Developmental Dynamics Lab and a fully immersive virtual reality suite. You’ll also have the opportunity to demonstrate all you’ve learned by implementing an individual research project of your own. This course is ideal if you’re interested in a career in child and adolescent psychology, educational psychology, teaching, child health and welfare, and parenting and family support services. The theoretical and research components of the degree will also give you a strong foundation for progressing to postgraduate study in developmental science. We also offer a range of career planning support, including a business training event and competitive paid placement and internship opportunities. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
