What can you do with a psychology major?

Many of our majors are accepted into top psychology graduate programs. Others establish careers in business, education, law, human service, non-profits, medicine and other health-related fields. Whatever your future path, the psychology major helps to develop some of the most important competencies of a liberal arts education - such as openness to new ideas, the ability to view issues from multiple perspectives, the ability to organize and evaluate data, effective problem solving and strong communication skills.
