Nature or nurture? Combining research methodology training with in-depth study at the cutting-edge of the field, our Developmental Science Master’s programme will give you real, nuanced insight into how one impacts on the other.
On the MSc Developmental Science you’ll advance your skills in one of current psychology’s fastest-moving and most fundamental areas. A tailored research placement will see you gain and further hone your research skills.
You can complete the course in one year full-time or over two years part-time. It is ideal if you are a high calibre graduate in psychology or a related discipline, who is looking to develop the specific methodological and analytical skills essential to developmental science.
