Each Career Guide highlights curriculum requirements, as well as skills and abilities that may be developed and applied through each course of study. To complement the academic information, a range of interesting occupational opportunities are listed as a starting point for considering how academic experiences may translate to professional work settings. The Career Guide series represents a collaborative effort between The Career Center and numerous academic units.
Students choosing psychology as a field of the major develop an approved plan for the major with a department advisor. Students then assume responsibility for completing their program of study or for making revisions which will not jeopardize their graduation. Students are, however, encouraged to consult a department advisor at any time. A department advisor must approve the original plan for the major and any exceptions to the stated requirements for the major. Students should also consult a department advisor when planning the final term's elections to ensure that all requirements for the major have been met and to secure an advisor's approval on a Major Release form. Appointments for students are scheduled at 1343 East Hall or online through the Department website.
