Careers in Psychology

Psychology offers an unusually wide variety of career opportunities. As the study of behavior, psychology is immediately relevant to nearly every type of human activity, and the career opportunities available to psychology students reflect this. With a strong background in psychology, you will not be restricted to a narrow range of career options -- indeed, you will be qualified to work in a variety of diverse, challenging, and exciting settings.

While many career paths in psychology require an advanced degree (either a Master's or Ph.D.), there are an abundance of options available to students with just a Bachelor's degree, as well. This page offers descriptions of many of the various career options available to psychology students (both with and without an advanced degree), and provides links to numerous resources on the internet which can help you to decide the type of career you want to pursue with your psychology degree.
