The Relationship Between Communication and Psychology Training

Communication is important for any career, but it’s absolutely vital when studying human behaviour. The relationship between communication and psychology runs deep, and anyone who wants to study to become a counsellor or psychologist must have these soft skills in place.

If you’re a psychology graduate looking to further your career, a master’s in Psychology can help you develop your knowledge and sharpen your emotional awareness. There’s no better time to enrol at the University of Bolton either, as we are offering a 2020 master’s bursary of up to £3,000 to support your studies.

As long as you have strong communication skills and the ability to relate to others, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for progression.

Why communication is so powerful

The relationship between communication and psychology isn’t just about how a practitioner interacts with patients or clients. These two areas are intrinsically linked, because interpersonal communications play a significant role in the way someone views themselves.

This means that every external interaction can impact the way a person communicates internally. Therefore, the quality of relationships directly affects someone’s mental health, in both positive and negative ways.

Benefits of a master’s degree

As well as honing your communication skills in a supportive and friendly environment, you will also explore contemporary methods and theories in psychology. Students studying at master’s level develop independence through their own research, and will get a chance to relate their research work to clinical practice.

Upon graduation, you will find a diverse range of job opportunities. You can also move onto doing a professional doctorate or work-based training scheme.

Our course leaders provide one-to-one mentorship to get to know you, and your career goals. This helps them provide support as you embark on your own independent research, and our Employability Team will work with you to find the right job or career path once you graduate.

Our award-winning student services team is also here to ensure that you have an unparalleled university experience, and will give you all the support you need during your psychology training.
