About

Led by an experienced team of developmental psychologists, the Psychology of Child and Adolescent Development programme at York St John University will advance your knowledge. 

Overview

We will focus on social, emotional, cognitive and neurobiological development, moving beyond the traditional focus on childhood and into adolescence.

Key Features

Learn about developmental, emotional and behavioural problems, relationships in childhood and adolescence, and cognitive development in the context of legal, health and educational settings.

You will receive advanced training in psychological research methods and culminate your studies through an extended research project relevant to human development. The content and format of the paper should be suitable for publication in an academic journal in the field.
