Graduate School Preparation

A psychology degree prepares you for several types of graduate programs, including counseling or psychology research programs, business school, law school, or medical school. There are many resources available to you at Texas A&M and within the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences that can help with your graduate school search and graduate school preparation. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

If you think graduate school is a possibility for you, start exploring your options early. You can visit the TAMU Career Center to explore options and areas. The advising office also has a number of books that can help you look through options. If you’re interested in doctoral programs in psychology, then the professors in your courses can be a great resource for finding programs that fit your interests.
