    Course Summary

    Queen’s University’s Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology is a great first start for anyone who wants to eventually practice as a professional or clinical psychologist. However, it is also the perfect Bachelor’s degree for people considering a career in the arts, in marketing or advertising, or even personnel management. After all, no matter what you do you’ll be dealing with other people, and understanding what motivates them will be a big help. 

    You’ll study how people learn and form memories, how they perceive the world around them, how they communicate verbally and nonverbally, how they deal with stress, how they grow and develop mentally, how mental illnesses can be treated and how groups behave in different ways than individuals. 

    You will also learn a great many easily transferrable skills, including professional research methods, presentation and communication skills and high level computer literacy. These will make it possible for you to explore advanced degrees in many fields, or to take up a role in nearly any industry or economic sector. 

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    A BSc in Psychology can lead you down many different career paths. Recent graduates have become health professionals, lab assistants, research assistants, corrections or law enforcement officers, human resource professionals, advertising and/or marketing professionals, psychiatric technicians or case managers.
