Careers in Psychology

Over the past several years, students graduating from Wellesley with a major in psychology have pursued a variety of activities. Some have gone on to graduate school in psychology, specializing in areas such as developmental, clinical, organizational/industrial, social, personality, counseling, educational, cognitive, and neuropsychology. A major in psychology also provides an excellent background for students interested in social work, education, health, public policy, business, law, or any field that requires an understanding of behavior or competence in conducting empirical research and analyzing data.
