I've recently graduated with a BSc in Psychology and seriously toying with the idea in doing a masters. Though I've found myself in a bit of a dilemma. There are two masters courses that really interest me; Applied Social Psychology from the University of Sussex or Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics from the University of Birmingham.
Though I'm bit conscious with both choices though. One thing I'd like to know from people who are currently doing or have done an Applied Social Psychology MSc, what kind of career opportunities are open to you? Personally, I cannot see myself going onto doing a PhD afters the masters so a career in academia is something I'm not striving for, nor am I striving for a career in the clinical sector (maybe in the future though). Nevertheless, social psychology has always been my favourite part of my Uni experience. The topics learnt seem to click with me and it is really interested to learn and about and actually observe in the real world. So, besides these two possible pathways what other careers can this MSc provide you with the opportunity with?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
