Career Preparation and Resources

A psychology degree prepares you for multiple career paths in a changing and dynamic world. As a psychology major, you master the ability to understand and predict human behavior, as well as the skills to ask questions and develop methods for answering those questions. These two skills are core to critical thinking and highly sought after among employers.  There are many resources available to you at Texas A&M that can help you identify and prepare for your future career. The best resource is the TAMU Career Center, which houses several mentors specific to liberal arts and experienced with psychology majors and employers looking for psychology majors.
