Introduction

This course focuses on infant and child development and will improve your understanding of both social and cognitive development. You'll also gain the academic skills that are necessary for developmental research.

The course deals with questions such as:

  • How can we support social-communication impairments in Autism Spectrum Disorder?
  • Does self-awareness influence children’s memory?
  • How does language acquisition differ in bilingual and school learning contexts?
  • What does the latest research tell us about mental health and well-being in infants, children, and adolescents?

You will have the opportunity to take part in ongoing research that the University is conducting in partnership with local education services. This will enable you to observe and participate in nursery settings, giving you the practical experience of conducting psychological research with young children.

The teaching draws on our research expertise in areas such as fetal and neonatal development, imitation, infant mental health, early self-awareness, attachment, preschool prosociality, bilingual language acquisition, meta-cognition, executive functioning, developmental dyslexia, and autism spectrum disorder.

Our facilities include EEG labs, a variety of eye-tracking technologies, 2D and 3D movement tracking systems, and offsite fMRI access via the Clinical Research Centre at Ninewells Hospital.

You will have access to your own dedicated social and study areas within the Psychology building. Our student-run Psychology Society organizes social events, study skills sessions, and a range of academic and career-oriented talks.
