Skills and Training


Course overview

Students take half their degree from Psychology and half from Music.

The Psychology element of the programme examines the complexities of the human mind and human behaviour. You will develop your understanding of different perspectives within Psychology as well as learning how to apply your growing knowledge to a variety of practical scenarios. A wide range of option modules will allow you to delve deeper into areas of particular interest or perhaps to explore new fields. You will also have the chance to take part in our international exchange programme and to spend a period of study in the USA.

The study of Music at Anglia Ruskin allows you the opportunity to specialise in areas such as performance, composition, music technology, jazz studies and music education, whilst the extensive and varied programme of performance activities complements your academic studies. The Music Department is very proud of its extensive schedule of public performances, so you will have ample opportunity to put your new skills to the test.

Career opportunities: Psychology and Music graduates are valued across many fields because of the diverse and useful skills that are acquired from the degree. A successful graduate can be expected to be able to write coherent and logical reports, understand statistical and other forms of evidence and have a good understanding of human behaviour, as well being confident and able to think creatively. Taken together, such skills are very appealing to a wide range of employers and not just those specifically in either of the two disciplines.
