During this degree you will have the opportunity to develop both specialist and transferable skills that are valued by employers, such as communication, critical thinking, numeracy and self-management. This programme will also support you in developing an advanced level of analytical skills. From research analysts to retail managers, a good grasp of human behavioural patterns, the science of the mind, and an understanding of language make linguistics and psychology graduates attractive to a wide range of employers.
You will be well-placed to apply for jobs such as a chartered psychologist, specialising in clinical, educational, occupational, forensic, health or sports psychology, or jobs in Speech and Language Therapy, Teaching, Journalism, Media, or Speech Technology.
Alternatively you might be interested in new and emerging areas such as neuropsychology, environmental psychology, consumer psychology and animal psychology. It is a fiercely competitive field, which needs a strong academic background, lots of relevant work experience, determination and resilience.
There are various options for postgraduate study too, should you wish to gain chartered status to practice in specialist areas such as clinical, educational, forensic or occupational psychology. Some psychology and linguistics graduates choose postgraduate study in a different area such as advertising, marketing or teaching.
