Recognizing that the psychology major prepares students for a wide variety of careers and graduate training programs, we are committed to placing students in co-ops and other work experiences related to their specific areas of interest. Psychology offers co-op jobs in a wide variety of clinical (i.e. client service) and research settings, as well as in business, nonprofit, education and consulting.
