This BA Psychology for Education offers a unique opportunity to explore how current psychological understanding can enhance professional practice. Drawing on expertise within the Department of Psychological Sciences, students will focus on issues of particular relevance to the everyday experience of educators, including children's intellectual, social and emotional development, communication and relationship building, working in partnership with parents and carers, working in multidisciplinary teams, and reflective practice. This programme will cover key issues in educational psychology and critically analyse a wide range of research. Each student will also produce an extended essay reviewing existing relevant specialist knowledge in a topic of his/her choice, under the guidance and supervision of an academic member of staff. In addition, and in collaboration with Birkbeck's Department of Organizational Psychology, students may select option modules to reflect their individual and professional interests. For many graduates this programme provides the academic foundations and enhanced professional competence to succeed within their existing post and career pathway. It is particularly suitable for those who want to support children and young people’s learning, development and well-being, as mentors, family support workers and behaviour specialists and for those considering a career as a primary or early years teacher.
