About Developmental Psychology at University of Lincoln

The MSc Developmental Psychology focuses on the social, emotional and cognitive development of children and is designed for graduates and practising psychologists who wish to acquire a specialism in child development.

The School of Psychology has a growing reputation as a centre of expertise in developmental psychology, with research interests in conceptual development, speech perception and language acquisition. Research in the School is finding immediate real-world applications. For example, studies into the misinterpretation of canine facial expressions have led to a prevention tool to reduce instances of children being bitten by dogs.

You will have access to the specialist Lincoln Babylab, which is equipped with facilities for preferential looking, listening and eye-tracking as well as a motor lab, imagination lab and research facilities for examining comparative cognitive development.

Throughout this programme, you have the opportunity to explore issues in developmental psychology, critically evaluate them and submit your research to peer-reviewed journals.
