Psychology is about people - the study of the human mind and behaviour; as such psychology graduates are well sought after in many workplaces. Psychology has many sub-fields which span across different fascinating subject areas including, but not limited to; development, social behaviour, sport, education and media. 

Our graduates will therefore be equipped to work in a number of environments, such as health and social care, business and education. As a Psychology graduate you may go on to become a chartered psychologist working with clients and attempting to understand the role of a person's mental functions in their individual behaviour and how they behave in a social environment.
