Careers in Psychology

The career opportunities open to someone with a degree in psychology depend largely on whether immediate employment is sought upon the completion of a bachelor's degree or whether advanced degrees (at the master's or doctoral level) are pursued by attending graduate school. The professional field of psychology is quite varied and, in many cases, calls for a high degree of specialization and advanced training.

Although an earned bachelor's degree in psychology does not make one a professional psychologist, completion of an undergraduate psychology major provides a student with both a strong liberal arts education and adequate preparation for entry-level employment in a variety of career paths.  See the Career Services Major WebLinks page for further information.
