Department of Psychology


Because of the wide range of generic skills and the rigour with which they are taught, training in psychology is widely accepted as providing an excellent preparation for a number of careers.

In addition to its traditional place in clinical, educational, and organisational, a psychology degree is highly marketable in:

  • Communications
  • Counselling
  • Health
  • Human resources
  • Management
  • Market research
  • Police work
  • Prison service
  • Social research

Much professional work in psychology requires further specialist training and many of our Bath graduates in Psychology go on to graduate training in psychology. Our department is also a training centre where select, experienced graduates study for doctorates in clinical psychology. We are consistently ranked highly in the UK university league tables for graduate prospects.
