Our graduates have a strong knowledge base in the field of Psychology. In addition, we emphasize analytical, research and communication skills (oral and written), which are valued across a wide range of employment settings and graduate/professional programs.
- Upon completion of their B.A., graduates may work in settings such as social services (e.g., social worker, child welfare), mental health (e.g., youth counselor, geriatric counselor), and education (e.g., behavior analyst).
- Some of our graduates have used their degrees as springboards into a wide range of professions not directly related to Psychology, such as business, consulting, computer industries and library science.
- Many of our B.A. recipients continue their education by seeking graduate degrees in Psychology. Others pursue professional degrees in medicine, dentistry, law, business and other areas.
