The intellectual, social and interpersonal skills that students develop while studying psychology are useful and marketable in a wide variety of professional fields. Psychology majors are prepared for virtually any role where knowledge of individual differences, personality, and social dynamics are needed. Today, such jobs are found throughout corporate and entrepreneurial businesses as well as in education, health and mental health care, and in the nonprofit sector. Psychology and Social Action alumni work in education, research, health care, social service and community action.

Graduate Study in Psychology

The B.S. Psychology and Social Action degree is an excellent preparation for students who plan to attend graduate school to become a counselor or clinical psychologist. They will acquire the knowledge and skills needed for entry into graduate-level programs in psychology, including the PAU graduate programs. Each year several graduates of the Psychology and Social Action program enter PAU's Master's in counseling program or PAU's Ph.D. or Psy.D. in clinical psychology program.

Early Start Program

Juniors in PAU's Bachelor's degree programs may apply for early admission and early participation in PAU's M.A. Counseling degree program, which is offered both on-campus and online. The Master's degree enables students to pursue licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) or as a Licensed Practical Clinical Counselor (LPCC).
