Psychology at work

A Psychology degree indicates that you are a student of human nature. You will understand what influences social behaviour and mental events that promote positive functioning and well-being. An undergraduate degree is also a good first step towards a masters or PhD, which are required for you to become a clinical psychologist or academic researcher.

  • case worker
  • probation or parole officer
  • career counsellor
  • mediator
  • family or marriage counsellor
  • research assistant
  • human resources professional
  • social worker
