This one-year, full-time, intensive Psychology (Conversion) programme of the Dublin City University covers a comprehensive curriculum in psychology with a strong focus on cutting-edge innovations in psychology, practice-based skills such as counselling and research skills.
The programme has been formally accredited by the Psychological Society of Ireland.
This course has been designed to enable graduates to seek membership of the Psychological Society of Ireland upon completion. Such membership is a prerequisite for further study in psychology, including clinical and applied areas. Graduates from this course who wish to pursue further study in psychology as a discipline can go on to specialise with either masters and doctorate qualifications in counselling, clinical psychology, forensic psychology, educational psychology, research and a range of other specialist areas in psychology.
Most students study psychology because they aim to pursue a career as a psychologist. However, others choose to study psychology because it offers a broad training in a behavioural science, it develops a wide range of valued transferable skills and it can be used as a stepping-stone into several other careers. Jobs options for graduates include:
- Assistant psychologist positions
- Data analysis
- Human resources
- Health promotion
- Community development
- Advanced Psychology Research Skills
- Biological Bases of Behaviour in the Brain
- Social Psychology: From Theory to Translation
- Lifespan Development (Childhood to Adulthood)
- Psychological Health, Difficulties & Disorder
