Work towards a clinical career with children, or take the next step towards a doctorate by studying for a Master's in Clinical Child Psychology at ARU.

Our Masters's degree in Clinical Child Psychology provides you with a strong foundation for research and will complement your professional clinical training.

As a student at Cambridge, you’ll gain a comprehensive theoretical knowledge of the field, as well as the practical ability to design and evaluate clinical research programmes.

At ARU, our specialist modules focus on the diagnosis and treatment of different conditions, developmental psychopathology (including causes and impacts) and the broader issues surrounding psychological research.

You’ll also train in quantitative and qualitative research methods, including infant observation, assessment and diagnostic interviewing, neuroimaging (electroencephalography and magnetoencephalography) as well as neuropsychological assessment. This leads up to your dissertation project, which will involve significant independent research with the guidance and support of our expert staff.

Our MSc Clinical Child Psychology is available to study full-time or part-time.

Please note that this course does not include clinical work with children, patients or mental health service users. It does not constitute professional training, though it can support entry to a doctorate in clinical psychology (or equivalent). We encourage you to seek out relevant paid or voluntary experience while completing your studies; our course is designed to facilitate this.
