What is psychology like in uniWatch
What do you learn about
Do you find it interesting
What jobs can you get with a psychology degree
I would say I was suprised how much maths was involved. I'm in my 2nd year and we've had to do 3 modules in 'quantitative methods' so far (aka statistics). And we've had to apply what we've learned in several research projects too. I would recommend having a thorough grasp of A-level statistics and normal distribution beforehand. Even if you just teach yourself and don't take the A-level.
In terms of jobs, you can do a lot. You can work in companies, advising them on advertising, how to motivate and look after their employees, product design etc. You can be a clinical psychologist (probably most well known). They provide counseling and diagnoses for people with mental health problems. You can be a criminal or forensic psychologist, which could involve working with the police to solve crimes or with the court to advise them on convictions. Health psychologists come up with ways to promote healthy lifestyles. You can be a researcher in any of 1000s of areas, which might involve developing sensory equipment (e.g. toys) or communication apps for people with disabilities, or arguing that certain mental health diagnoses need altering. (Did you know that homosexuality was only removed from the list of mental illnesses in the 80s? And that there are currently issues with the symptoms of things like schizophrenia, bipolar and personality disorders overlapping? So there's a lot of work to be done around this.) A psychology degree will also get you into other areas of work, like working in human resources, management jobs and all sorts. Basically... there's a lot. I chose it because it kept a lot of doors open for me. But one thing I will say, a basic 3 year degree tends to give you a broad over view of psychology, but afterwards you might have to do another year or more to specialise in your chosen area, depending on what you choose.
All in all, it's the best choice I ever made. I love it and would definitely recommend.
Hope this helps!
