Course Summary

Our MSc Developmental Sciences is designed to give you an understanding of the role of the child’s environment through the study of the impact of the family, communities and other social networks. You will explore the interaction of biology and social factors in the context of atypical developmental paths, such as those observed in dyslexia, autism and other developmental disorders.

The programme is designed for graduates from psychology and related disciplines who seek to deepen their understanding of cutting-edge contemporary research in developmental science, as well as established practitioners and policy-makers wishing to update their training. The MSc focuses on enabling you to carry out empirical research at postgraduate level.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in psychology, health or social work, education and policy development. Possible professions may include psychologist, counsellor or researcher. This degree may also be useful in becoming a further education lecturer.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.

Modules

The primary aim of this module is to introduce you to the critical reading and appraisal of an extended academic work such as a published monograph or book.
