Strategies:

Picture of scales If you want to work with people, in caring work, teaching, law, journalism, publishing, police work, health, work with children or to work abroad, PSR / Religious Studies will give you plenty to think about and valuable expertise. In the world of work, most employers look for someone with an enquiring mind, an appreciation of different viewpoints, an ability to come to clear and balanced decisions. These skills all develop through study of courses in this department.
