Psychology in Education University of Birmingham

Undergraduate

The programme will offer you clear progression routes into graduate careers in educational psychology, early years education, special educational needs, and educational research, including through preparation for relevant post-graduate study or practice.

This programme includes core and optional modules in a range of areas of psychology such as biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, with a specific focus on their application to education. Research methods training, and developing an understanding of the contribution of psychological research to education, will also be an important feature of this programme. Our modules will be regularly updated to include the newest research in the field, and to reflect the changing role and influence of psychology in education.

You can select additional modules from our BA (Hons) Education to understand the role of psychology in the context of the contributions of sociology, history and philosophy of education.

There are three years of study, each worth 120 credits, including a compulsory two-week vocational placement during the third year and completion of a dissertation.
