Are you contemplating a Psychology degree?

The mind is complex and powerful, yet fragile. Psychology builds an understanding of the connections between thoughts and behaviours, which you can apply to a range of professions.

Do you find yourself puzzling over the actions of others? Rather than jumping to conclusions, are you left wondering what sparked a response? Maybe your friends seek you out in their hour of need because you listen rather than make judgement? If this is ringing true, a degree in Psychology could suit your inquisitive mind. But why study a Psychology degree?

Psychologists are observant, patient and insightful by nature. They are fascinated by people and understand that a number of factors impact how each of us responds to a situation. They are keen to find ways to help others manage the challenges of life and fulfil their potential.

What skills are developed on a Psychology degree course?

A Psychology degree will hone your communications skills and develop your abilities in critical thinking and evaluation. You’ll learn Psychology theory and become competent in research. This course also demands considerable focus on personal awareness. You’ll explore your prejudices, values, beliefs, and what makes you tick.

With a focus on human behaviour, volunteering in a people-centred role is also encouraged. This provides a great opportunity to observe, and to put some of your learning into practice. How can your words and actions improve the situations you witness?

What are the career options for Psychology graduates?

Typically working in health, rehabilitation and education, they are natural problem-solvers who help others to reach positive outcomes. Their interest in human behaviour also provides valuable insight for careers in marketing, teaching, human resources (HR), management, recruitment and user experience (UX) design.

Psychology graduates would typically start in an assistant or research role, with salaries reaching around £24,000. If you’re interested in studying a Psychology degree, take a look at the courses that we offer at the University of Bolton here.
