Career Path Graduates can explore a career in psychology, specifically consumer psychology. They can work in the consumer research end of marketing materials design, assessing what might or might not have an impact on consumers or achieve the required response from consumers. The programme is also useful for those from a business background looking to move into the field of psychology. Consumer Psychology is important in a number of sectors and industries, but more so in retail, luxury consumer products and in B2C businesses. Consumer Psychology is quickly becoming an emphasis in the digital world too, as User Design (UX and UI) is important for online user journeys, reduced friction during online purchasing, and enhancing a visitors journey.
