Our thought processes have a significant impact on how we feel, how we learn, how we behave, and what we can achieve. Past experiences, traumatic events and social factors can distort our thinking, which can impact on all aspects of our lives. Psychology graduates are sought for a variety of roles where people need to or want to change their lives for the better.
A Psychology degree could lead you into any people-orientated profession. Here is just a taster of the career options that might spark your interest:
As a Psychology graduate, you might take on the role of a Teacher, Executive Coach, Mentor, or HR Manager. These roles focus on how to encourage individuals to break down barriers and adopt a positive attitude. Changes to their thinking can help individuals to realise their potential.
Other Psychology careers help individuals to rebuild their lives following a major event. Would you prefer a career in rehabilitation, counselling, psychotherapy and criminal justice? Your job could be helping others to create a better future for themselves.
Not all Psychologists work directly with people. Some focus on data analysis, research and profiling to predict behaviours. This insight supports criminal investigations, business marketing, supply chain management, government advice and event management.
The University of Bolton offers an established Psychology department. Our students benefit from excellent resources and quality teaching as well as gaining valuable experiences, within approved professional settings.
Whether you are drawn to the corporate world or are keen to help the vulnerable to improve their mental health, psychology can be a fascinating career path. For more information about the courses on offer at the University of Bolton, click here.
