Careers for Psychology Majors

Ways to Approach This Topic • 1st: Understand that major does not equal career – Your final resume: degree is 2 lines; experience important • Look at your timeline: When do you graduate? How much experience so far? Job or graduate school immediately after SEU/Bachelor’s degree? • If you know what you want to do, plan strategy to build your resume/C.V. • Look at job descriptions • Conduct information interviews

Graduate School Options

Choosing a School/Program • Fact: psychology is a broad field • Start your research today! • School websites, concentrations, read the details • Research admissions requirements, deadlines • Research programs, faculty, financing • Correspond with faculty • Attend SEU graduate fair in fall semester

The Application Process • Recommend applying to 12+ schools • Application requirements: – GRE test score – Transcript/SEU GPA – Curriculum Vitae/CV – Essay (Personal Statement, etc. Why graduate school?) – Sometimes an additional essay on specific topic – Letters of recommendation – Sometimes an interview
