Program Description:

The MSc Child and Family Psychology degree combines research methods training with the study of children and families, their development, roles and social contexts, in order to prepare students to undertake a research project on a child and family topic of their choice. It will challenge students to look critically at the changing nature of childhood and families in the 21st century, within applied, ecological, interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives. Students will need to demonstrate understanding of psychological approaches to child and family research questions and will undertake a research project supervised by a psychologist accredited by the British Psychological Society. The MSc Child and Family Psychology is offered over one year full-time, or two years part-time.


The Centre for Research on Children & Families is based in the School and many of the staff involved in teaching and supervising students on the MSc in Child and Family Psychology are national and international experts, able to bring their experience of real- world research as well as their subject expertise to offer research-led teaching.
