Psychology with Childhood Studies BSc

I’m studying Psychology with Childhood Studies with hopes to become a child psychologist. The foundation year at Newman was amazing. I studied a range of interesting topics, which provoked insightful debates that has developed my outlook further. The foundation year has also prepared me to carry on my studies confidently at Newman.

My Project:

I chose to explore the topic of how the digital world has changed childhood as it has become the norm to have access to the digital world, if not vital, within everyday life. This means children have a huge access more than ever to social media. I wanted to research and educate myself on how this is impacting children’s mental health. Hopefully you will find this interesting as I found creating the digital project.
