What is psychology?
Psychology looks at conditions of human behaviour – how we learn, remember, coordinate our actions and interact with others – and the reasons for differences between individuals, such as personality or intelligence.
Why study psychology?
As well as careers as a professional psychologist, psychology graduates have a lot of options open to them. Many go on to further study or to careers in teaching, human resource management, social work, as well as many other areas.

MSc Clinical Health Psychology
Strathclyde gave me the opportunity to explore different aspects within psychology including health, clinical and neuropsychology. This was important for me as I didn't want to have tunnel vision and was keen to keep my options open.
The Strathclyde psychology department is phenomenal, and they only get better and more of an asset to your university experience the further you progress through the course.

MRes in Physical Activity for Health
I have been extremely lucky to get a supervisor who has gone the extra mile to make me feel welcome into the Physical Activity for Health department.
Magdalena Ifesie, Poland
MSc Psychology with a Specialisation
The ability to study what I am interested in at a prestigious university without compromising my life was very attractive. I was able to create my own learning schedule that worked with other commitments. Being able to study at my own pace was also very helpful.
