The Psychology curriculum focuses on understanding individual behavior – relationships among the physical world (biology and behavior), thought, emotion, memory, and spirit. Some careers awaiting psychology majors are directly in the field of psychology, while others require additional training in another field or specialty area. In either case, having a solid understanding of the human mind and behavior can be beneficial in a multitude of careers. Psychology majors may pursue many potential avenues of study and employment, including: therapy, counseling (mental health, school, and addiction), research, or focus on special areas in psychology such as physiological, cognitive, and behavioral.
