Educational Psychology incorporates a variety of psychological fields such as social, neuro, biological and cognitive psychology. Our comprehensive approach to this course provides you with the understanding to apply a wide range of methods and practices to real world settings, problems and contexts.
An interdisciplinary approach to understanding educational psychology has been embedded at Level 4 to allow you to develop an understanding of the educational context from perspectives of history, sociology and psychology. This will provide you with a strong foundation for future study in the second and third year where you will specialise intensively on psychological theories, methods and their applications.
Upon graduating, you will have developed a range of transferable skills and an advanced understanding of the way that psychological theories and research influence child and adult learning in educational settings.
The Educational Psychology curriculum, at all levels of study, aims to develop skills and attributes required for employment within a range of services for children and young people.
