Many psychology students intern during the summer following their
sophomore and/or junior years at nonprofit organizations and counseling
agencies nationwide. Contact the department chair for more information, or visit the College's internship page HERE.
Psychology majors who do not enter graduate school are finding employment in various private and governmental agencies that serve children and youth, working with drug and alcohol addicts, and finding entry-level management positions in business. As a liberal arts major, psychology does not "lock you in" to a particular career or life path. Most people will have a variety of jobs or careers during their working years. A liberal arts major like psychology will provide you with a well-rounded, basic education (with an emphasis on psychological science - the study of why people act and think the way they do) that you can apply and adapt to many different career settings.
