Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour.  Psychologists observe and conduct experiments to understand what we’re motivated, challenged and influenced by.  And these findings are used to help us deal with personal and social challenges affecting our lives.

A qualification in psychology can open many professional doors for you.  From management to medicine, social work to sports – a degree in psychology can take you just about anywhere.

 A Psychology degree gives you options.

And lots of them. Much like the subject itself, career options in psychology are never black and white. Forensics, health, education, clinical, counselling and life coaching are just a few of the sectors you can consider when you graduate.

A psychology degree also gives you skills. Not only do you learn how to understand aspects of human behaviour, you also develop analytical skills that teach you to think critically, handle data and present information as well as becoming a confident communicator – skills valued by employers and relevant to any walk of life.

Studying a Psychology degree at the University of Dundee is a unique experience. The department is small which means you’re given quality time with your lecturers allowing you to get the best from yourself and the course.
