Summary

Child Development MSc

This Master's programme will deepen students' knowledge of child development and developmental psychology and prepare them for professional work with children and young people or progression to professional doctorates, higher research degrees, or employment as a researcher.

About this degree

This programme provides a high-quality education in the main theories, methods, and findings of psychological research relating to child development. The programme aims to enable independent learning and an approach to developmental psychology that is both informed and critical. Participants have the opportunity to conduct research that contributes to the field of child development.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MSc in Child Development.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures delivered by both UCL Institute of Education academic staff and guest speakers, group work, and computer workshops giving hands-on practice. Assessment is through coursework involving a variety of methods including research reports, extended writing pieces, policy briefs, group work, lay reports as well as the dissertation.

Each of the taught modules has 30 hours of contact time (lectures, seminars and group activity). Students are expected to supplement these contact hours via self-directed study. Further time is set aside for contact with supervisors for the dissertation, where the bulk of the work consists of independent research activity.
