Overview

In Psychology, you’ll study human behaviour. Psychological research is motivated by the desire to understand both general behaviour (how we learn, remember, co-ordinate our actions and interact with others) and the reason for the differences between individuals such as personality or intelligence.

Create your own course

Modern business is too complex to be covered by a single subject: modern managers need to have a broad outlook.

You choose basic classes in business and other disciplines, alongside the Business School’s Management Development Programme. You’ll study a wide variety of subjects and create a curriculum to suit your interests and needs.

You also have the opportunity to try new subjects, some of which you won’t have experienced at school or college. At the beginning of Year 2, you choose two subjects to continue studying in Years 2 and 3. You’ll also select a third, ‘minor’ subject and take further Management Development skills classes.

Careers

Your people-management skills and specialist knowledge will really broaden your career prospects. A degree in Human Resource Management and Psychology from the University of Strathclyde is valued by employers.

Our HRM graduates find jobs in insurance, retail, manufacturing, recruitment consultancy and in the public sector. Some are employed in jobs such as HR trainee, HR assistant and recruitment consultant whilst others are employed in general administration and management.

Psychology graduates can continue their studies to become professional psychologists and work in areas such as clinical, educational, occupational psychology, or in research.

Among the range of other possible careers are teaching, human resource management, careers guidance, social work, market research, recruitment consultancy, counselling, management and professional positions throughout the private and public sectors.
