Psychology career resources

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 doctorate), there is an abundance of options available to students with just a bachelor's degree.
