What can I do with...

...a psychology degree?

Baffled about your career options? This nifty little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your psychology degree. 



Having chosen to do a psychology degree, you might believe that you’re destined to grow a beard, don some spectacles and spend your life developing theories about psychosexual competition à la Sigmund Freud. However, a psychology degree will actually provide you with a fantastic platform from which to enter a range of fascinating sectors...



Your head might be crammed full of useful (and some not-so-useful) information, but your psychology degree will also help you to develop a wealth of useful skills…

Analytical Skills

You’re better than Shearer and Hansen put together. You’re even better than Gary Neville. Fortunately, your top-notch analytical skills also extend beyond the world of football punditry.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.

Critical Thinking

When you’re presented with a problem or idea, you have the ability to think about it from a critical perspective. You’re not afraid to share your opinion.

Data Handling

You can compile, organise and analyse data. Qualitative data? Quantitative data? It doesn’t matter. You’ve got it nailed.

Interpersonal Awareness

You understand the sources of interpersonal conflict and can deal with people’s interpersonal problems when they surface.


You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Problem Solving

You’re a bit like Jimmy McNulty in The Wire. You might swear a lot, but you can solve problems quickly and logically without too much head-scratching.


Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.


You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.



Like Pavlov’s dogs, you should be salivating at the prospect of your future career by now. If you’re not quite there yet and your mouth still feels like you’ve eaten three Jacob’s Cream Crackers in 30 seconds, check out the different roles you could secure with your psychology degree…
