Psychology

Psychology is the study of how people think, feel

and behave. We examine how the brain works,

how children develop, and aspects of behaviour

such as how people cope with stressful life

events. We also study human personality and

intelligence, and why some people suffer from

mental health disorders.

“Being part of the creative process and working with a great marketing team

and creative agency on national campaigns is very rewarding. I get a lot of

job satisfaction from being involved in a creative process that has a tangible

effect on the business. A lot of my jobs have involved copywriting, and having

a degree that involved a lot of essays gave me the confidence I needed in the

workplace. University also taught me to be a more attentive listener and to

pay attention to detail – skills that have served me well in my career.

“The reason I chose a BA was that it gave me the opportunity throughout

my degree to really understand exactly what it was I enjoyed and therefore

would excel at. In my first year I took more of a mixture of courses, but by

the time I hit second year I knew what it was I wanted to focus on, what I

was enjoying and consequently what I was excelling in.

“Study what you enjoy and you’re more likely to succeed. University for me

was about enjoying learning in a new way and discovering what I was good

at. It also gave me confidence in my own abilities to succeed – something

that I never really found at school.”
