Career Planning


Career Opportunities

Understanding human behavior can be useful in almost any job. Statistics are also proving that, in comparison to specialized degrees, a broad, sound, liberal arts education can be an asset for advancement in a variety of careers. Students maximize their employment potential by excelling in their course work and diversifying their college education by capitalizing on the unique aspects of our program (i.e., service learning, practicum and research).  The jobs listed below come from a variety of areas. They differ in terms of the credentials one will need to pursue them (i.e., Bachelor of Science degree to a Ph.D.). Students interested in these options are encouraged to research them further. This will help students to determine the specific steps they can take as an undergraduate to enhance their chances of landing a particular job. For example, a practicum assignment can provide students with valuable hands-on training. It can also help them determine whether a particular job or career is something they would enjoy. Another resource is the Academic Success and Career Center (ASCC). ASCC Advisors can help students arrange interviews with potential employers, look at job listings, etc. In addition, students are encouraged to discuss their options with faculty, psychology academic advisors, and potential employers.
