Psychology has a broad range of real-world applications in everyday life, ranging from stress, health, mental illness, artificial intelligence, to personal development, social interaction and the environment. A degree in psychology can provide access to a wide range of careers. Psychology graduates are valued across many fields because of the diverse and highly sought after knowledge and skills that are acquired from a psychology degree. A successful psychology graduate can be expected to write coherent and logical reports, understand statistical and other forms of evidence and have a good understanding of human behaviour. Taken together, such skills are very appealing to a wide range of employers and not just those in specifically psychological areas.
