Overview

The topics covered in the Applied Developmental Psychology programme at the Queen's University Belfast  include: quantitative and qualitative research methods, atypical development in the classroom, childhood adversity: from basic science to improving outcomes, and theoretical perspectives on child and adolescent development.

This MSc aims to provide graduate students with an opportunity for advanced study in specialist topics in the field of applied developmental psychology and to prepare graduate students for more advanced research in applied developmental psychology, professional training in psychology or other discipline-related professional training.

Career Prospects 

The programme is designed to prepare graduate students for more advanced research in developmental psychology, for professional training in psychology or related disciplines, and/or for employment in children's voluntary or statutory services. It will also provide graduates with the research skills and knowledge to carry out a PhD in developmental psychology and/or in childhood studies, and to pursue an academic career. 

Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.

Programme Structure

  • This module bridges the gap between developmental psychology, educational psychology, and clinical child and adolescent psychology to provide a rounded insight into the challenges that neurodevelopmental disorders pose in educational contexts. 
  • Over the course of the module, students will learn about the atypical development of language, literacy and communication skills, and mathematical cognition, and discuss the impact of deficits in core areas of cognition, such as working memory and executive function. The students will also develop a range of skills through individual and group work which will support their long-term personal and professional development.
