Are you interested in psychology and education? How children and young people learn? In the mental and emotional well-being of children and young people? Perhaps you already work, or would like to work, with children and young people in educational settings and want to enhance your academic knowledge and professional practice. You may be considering training in one of the professions in education and would like to take a first step by attaining a relevant undergraduate degree.
You will study key issues in educational psychology and critically analyse a wide range of research. You will also produce an extended essay reviewing existing relevant specialist knowledge in a topic of your choice, under the guidance and supervision of an academic member of staff. In addition, and in collaboration with Birkbeck’s Department of Organizational Psychology, you will be able to select option modules to reflect your individual and professional interests.
This programme will equip you with knowledge and a critical appreciation of contemporary psychological theory and research, and issues in educational psychology.
You will gain analytical and critical thinking skills transferable to professional settings in education.
