Mathematics and Psychology careers

In our experience many employers look favourably on students who can demonstrate their abilities in more than one field. Newcastle graduates will have acquired the ability to research, evaluate and communicate information, alongside developing specialist subject knowledge, practical and technical skills.

This provides graduates with a range of educational and career opportunities, especially if the skills you have developed during your degree have been further enhanced by work experience.

Depending on subject combinations, Joint Honours in Science graduates have very broad career options. In the past, our graduates have entered careers in the business and financial sectors or specialised further in their area of expertise such as accountancy and psychology. Graduates who wish to pursue a career in teaching will find that they are suitably qualified to study for a PGCE in either discipline. Those graduates who enter employment outside their discipline find a flexible degree of this nature is highly valued in professions such as management, commerce and the civil service.
