The study of Psychology, and the knowledge this provides, is useful in most contexts in which people act and interact. You will gain cutting edge skills in both psychology and research, along with scholarly and critical thinking. In addition, your studies will entail personal development, as you will learn to understand your own thoughts and actions.
Students often choose Psychology as part of a Bachelor’s degree, along with another subject. Thanks to the broad focus of Psychology, this combination could include anything from economics to ecology. Psychology can also be part of vocational education with the aim of becoming a teacher or human resources specialist, making the subject the basis of a future profession. A large number of students at Södertörn University study Psychology as part of the Personnel Management programme, and many of them now work in recruitment or HR. However, studying Psychology can lead to work in anything from public enquiries, healthcare to marketing.
