The University of Bolton MSc in Psychology includes a concentration on important contemporary issues, such as Positive Psychology. The study of Positive Psychology enables individuals, companies and communities to thrive and cultivate the best within themselves, and thus improve their experiences of work, leisure time and relationships. The field and study of psychology is vast, and can lead to a number of rewarding career options for degree holders after graduation. An MSc in Psychology is very attractive to employers because graduates of postgraduate psychology programmes are excellent communicators – they possess a good deal of knowledge about people’s behaviour, how relationships are formed, group dynamics – and at the same time they have a scientific mind and advanced research expertise. Such knowledge and skills are central to almost all jobs these days. In addition, the strong research component of this particular MSc programme will open many doors. Graduates of the MSc can pursue further studies at PhD level, to become an expert in the field and pursue a career in academia or industry.
