You might have heard people say, "Psychology's a bad
major because you can't
get a job without a graduate degree."
Because psychology is a liberal arts major, a wide
variety of jobs are open to students straight out of college. Below are just a few possibilities available to those with Bachelor's degrees.
If you are interested in
business, you can work in human resources in a large
organization, helping to interview, train, and retain employees. You might help a
market research firm analyze data or run a focus group.
In the human services field, you might find a job working for a
nonprofit organization, working in fundraising, grant writing, or
conducting outcome evaluations. Or, at such an organization you could
work directly with populations of people in need (such as those with intellectual disabilities). In an outpatient or
school-based program, you can be trained to work one-on-one with kids with autism spectrum disorder.
