The MSc Developmental Disorders offers advanced knowledge of psychological aspects of developmental disorders, and aims to provide a foundation for students who are interested in later studying for a professional qualification in clinical or educational psychology, or a career in research.
Knowledge will be acquired through engagement with advanced-level theory and from practical work that will enable the student to develop expertise in cutting-edge research methods. The MSc also provides practical knowledge of aspects of diagnosis and assessment, and therapeutic or educational interventions for developmental disorders.
The course comprises two taught semesters of full-time study, from late September to mid-June, plus the summer period, ending in September, when an empirical research project is undertaken.
One year full-time.
