Why your psychology degree is so useful in arts administration….

Those pesky stats and associated software – SPSS and R – who knew how useful they could be in Arts admin?! You’ll never be daunted by Excel if you can master stats programmes.

And your critical thinking skills for evaluating your work, your projects and your motivations. Plus writing reports for your boss is eased greatly by your report writing on psychology projects.

Add to that the content of some of your social psychology courses for understanding of issues around access for all at events, and you can see just how useful psychology is in this area of work (combined with relevant experience in theatres and festivals, and a passion for this area of work of course!).

Read psychology grad Anna’s full story here, to find out how she is using her psychology on a daily basis in her work as  Events and Membership Assistant at the Federation of Scottish Theatre. 

And meet Anna in person at our Life Beyond your Degree alumni/student social event next Thursday 1st Feb. Sign up via Eventbright now to book your place.
