Psychology is a subject with incredible scope and impact. Understanding human behaviour at both individual and group level is not only fascinating, but also an expertise that is highly valued in a range of different contexts â from the diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems to the improvement of human performance at work or in sport through motivational techniques.
A degree in psychology will give you knowledge, skills and competencies that are prized by employers, such as critical thinking and research abilities.
Taught by staff including internationally respected academics within the highly ranked School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, the psychology course at Loughborough offers a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of psychological science, allowing graduates to build their careers on a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited qualification.
