Psychology has never been more important in terms of influence on educational policy and practice. The nexus between psychology and education represents an exciting and cutting edge field of study with diverse theoretical and methodological approaches.
This course offers you the opportunity to discover how approaches to education impact upon learning and development, and gives you the knowledge and skills to understand how psychology can inform education. It will provide you with a sound basis for pursuing a wide range of future careers including teaching, youth work, educational or clinical psychology, counselling and social work.
You’ll be taught by experts in education and psychology who will use their research to inform their teaching, and you’ll have the opportunity to conduct your own research while exploring the relationship between the two disciplines.
The course has both theoretical and practical components – you’ll benefit from opportunities to gain practical experience of working in an educational context to apply your theoretical knowledge.
