Psychology majors study human behavior, and because almost every career requires interacting with others, you’ll find psychology graduates working in business, education, health, urban planning and design, sports, and public safety. Understanding what motivates our colleagues, what instruction they are likely to remember, and how groups interact, are just some of the everyday situations for which a degree in psychology will prepare you. Our undergraduate curriculum stresses communication skills, scientific research, critical thinking, and cultural competency – all skills important to employers and for future graduate work. Psychology majors may qualify for certification as early childhood, elementary, and comprehensive secondary education social studies teachers. A number of students also double major in psychology and social work.
