The MSc in Applied Child Psychology at Keele University will be of interest to anyone, UK-based or international, who currently works with or is interested in careers supporting children, from infancy to adolescence, in a professional or personal capacity in education, healthcare, childcare, forensic settings, such as courts, and leisure or voluntary settings, such as sports clubs and youth groups.
It will prepare you to design and conduct psychological research to assess children’s physical, cognitive and emotional development. This encompasses everything from memory capacity to how they learn language, use reasoning or imagination, feel and express their emotions, and interact with their peers and with adults.
This MSc has been designed to provide the psychological knowledge, tools and skills to work with children from infancy to young adulthood. This could lead to careers working with children and young people across the public, private and third sector, for example, working in education, research, social services, health services, health promotion, policy or advocacy.
Should you wish to continue your research, you will be well placed to pursue an academic or research career in developmental or educational psychology, for example, or by studying for a PhD or through relevant work experience.
