Why Choose Psychology?

True to the liberal arts tradition, emphasis in the psychology major focuses on the importance of critical thinking and communication skills necessary for entry into graduate programs such as experimental psychology, clinical psychology and counseling psychology. Fewer than 1-in-10 psychology graduates enroll in graduate work in psychology. Therefore, the psychology degree is quite appropriate for entry into professions such as law, government service and human resources. Students with interests in psychology, but career aspirations elsewhere, often choose a major in another field and minor in psychology.
