It is highly recommended that Applied Psychology majors who plan on working at the bachelors level after graduation or applying to a masters program in counseling or an allied health or human services field take an additional concentration, minor, or major in one or more career-related areas: human services, gerontology, English, mass communication, child & family studies, religion, environment & community, business administration, management, marketing, international education & missions, or computer studies.
In addition to required coursework, all Applied Psychology majors are expected to:
- Uphold the Psychology Department Code of Ethics;
- Participate in departmental meetings, events, and student organizations;
- Be in regular conversation with your faculty advisor about career preparation, adjustment to college life, and any problems you are encountering; and,
- Compile a portfolio of materials documenting your experiences, knowledge, and skills relevant to your goals for life after graduation.
Because job and graduate school preparations can vary widely depending on career direction, CAREFULLY PLAN your course of studies in regular conversation with your faculty advisor.
