Why study Psychology?

Psychology is the scientific study of people, the mind and behaviour. It is both a thriving academic discipline and a vital professional practice (The British Psychological Society).
Psychology is particularly relevant to any job that involves working directly with people or any job that requires the use of problem solving skills.
You could become involved in the worlds of clinical, sport, occupational, health, forensic, educational or criminal psychology. Alternatively, a career in education, the Armed Forces, sports management, human resources, medicine, the emergency services, media...any career involving working with people!
Psychology is a remarkably fascinating subject at all levels of study.
