The Department offers two main sources of career information: a course, PSY 210R, Career Planning, and the Psychology Club. PSY 210R is taken along with PSY 210, Research Methods, and PSY 210L, Research Tools. Ideally, students should complete these courses by the end of sophomore year. The Psychology Club meets every other Wednesday at noon, usually in MEP 331. Although not all meetings are career-oriented, many are. Past meetings have featured therapists, school psychologists, market researchers, medical researchers, and Industrial/Organizational psychologists, among others, dicussing their positions and the education and experiences needed to obtain them.
Here are some useful websites with graduate school and/or career information:
The Department strongly encourages student to visit and utilize the resources of the Career Services Center, located in University Center 325. The Career Development Center can help with résumé construction and interviewing skills, and can assist students in meeting potential employers.
