With respect to interesting curricula, in addition to integrating service-learning projects into my own courses, I served on the University’s General Education Task Force since its inception and continue to serve as a member of the Integrative Core Advisory Board.

Psychology Careers

As a psychologist, your skills will be in high demand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the demand for psychology careers will grow over the next decade because of an increased need for psychological services in schools, hospitals, social service agencies, mental health centers, substance abuse treatment clinics, consulting firms and private companies.

According to the BLS, growth in the specialty of industrial-organizational psychology will be especially swift with a predicted growth rate of 53% (about 900 new jobs) through 2022. Organizations will place an increased demand on these individuals as they seek to select and retain employees, increase productivity and improve office morale.

What can you do with a psychology major? Teaching and/or research are common psychology careers as are clinical and counseling psychology with positions requiring professional preparation at most colleges and universities. If you want to be a professional psychologist, you’ll need to complete two to five years of graduate study after obtaining a bachelor's degree in psychology. The psychology major requirements at Mount Union provide a strong foundation for continuing your studies at the graduate level.

Students who intend to continue the study of psychology should consult their academic advisors early in their undergraduate years to assure proper preparation for graduate school.
