BSc (Hons) in Educational Psychology
The BSc (Hons) Educational Psychology is a three-year full-time program giving you the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of psychology and apply this in an educational context. You will follow a pathway that is composed of a variety of psychology and education-related modules.
The course will allow you to gain an understanding of psychology as well as educational and pedagogical knowledge. The program also enables you to examine the biological, cognitive, developmental, individual difference and social psychological principles underlying everyday experience and behavior.
The program is designed to take you from the core discipline knowledge of theory and empirical findings relevant to human behavior to an in-depth understanding of educational psychology. When studying the education modules you first acquire a sound knowledge base on which a deeper understanding of the philosophy, policy, and practice of education is built. You will then apply this knowledge and understanding of work placement and through an independent project in the third year of the course.
Exploring topics on a local, national and global scale, you will learn about education and psychology from a holistic perspective and understand that you can make a significant difference to the lives of others. You will recognize effective psychological and educational practices and understand how children learn best.
You will get the opportunity to learn about social justice, forest schools, child development, understanding relationships, and seminal theorists.
