Course summary

BSc Educational Psychology will provide you with a strong grounding in educational psychology - the application of psychological theories and principles to context of education. Educational Psychology is a broad field that draws upon multiple perspectives to help explain and understand human functioning and behaviour. The course will allow you to explore core areas of psychology specifically in relation to education, including biological, cognitive, social, and developmental psychology. It will also encourage you to consider the importance of individual differences. You will study both historical and contemporary thinking in these areas, and explore how they intersect with educational theories and philosophies. The course is a great option if you wish to:

  • begin a career pathway towards educational psychology (e.g. become an educational psychologist, play or behavioural therapist, or similar);
  • begin a career pathway towards other professional psychology training routes, with an educational focus (e.g. school-based counselling);
  • progress into teaching and education-based vocations, with a specialism towards pastoral responsibilities and/or special educational needs;
  • prepare for a research career within the public sector and/or private industry.
