Careers in Psychology


The undergraduate major in Psychology can lead to further training at the graduate level, function as a major within a general liberal arts degree, or offer some degree of specialization in such areas as developmental psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, and community mental health. Job opportunities with a bachelor's degree include working in business, social welfare, and health care. For more career information see an adviser in the Undergraduate Psychology Office. To function specifically as a psychologist, a graduate degree is required. Students with such an interest should plan for this additional training.
