Psychology Career Opportunities

Some psychology graduates take jobs as para-professionals in a variety of human service settings (e.g., mental health clinics, social service departments, community organizations). Other graduates enter the private industry workforce, applying their acquired skills and knowledge in a variety of capacities. Businesses are often interested in hiring psychology majors because of their training in interpersonal skills.

Psychology majors have been successful in finding jobs. In recent years, graduates have found work in settings as diverse as a children's psychiatric facility in Vermont, a county mental health clinic in North Carolina, and a community outreach and education center in South Carolina.

Some students also choose to go to graduate schools for advanced degrees. They find that our program provides them with the necessary tools to succeed in those settings as well.
