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.

"I first came to study at Dundee in 2010. Since then, I have graduated with an undergraduate degree in 2014 (MA Psychology), a masters degree in 2015 (MSc Psychological Research Methods) and I am now 18 months into my PhD here. Having got to know the lecturers and other staff during my undergrad course, I couldn't imagine having gone anywhere else for my postgraduate study. The department is friendly, it's the kind of place everyone smiles and says hello to each other in the corridors and that can really make a difference to your time at University."
