A psychology degree can take you anywhere

Are you curious about the decisions people make and why? Do you find the intricacies of relationships endlessly fascinating? Can you see yourself as a researcher or clinician studying human behavior or behavioral health? Do you look at organizations and think there’s a better way for people to interact? If so, consider majoring in psychology at Susquehanna University, where our students have a track record of success in multiple career paths. They are consistently accepted to among the best graduate and professional schools in the world. Each student in our program works with a faculty member and completes an original research project, providing experience and skills that are key to landing a job or getting into graduate school.

As an undergrad, you will have the rare opportunity to attend and present at professional conferences, where you will interact with leading researchers in the field. Presenting your own research sets you apart from your peers. Students also gain real-world experience during a personally curated practicum while being mentored by a Susquehanna University professor. This is invaluable experience for those who want to become social workers, therapists, clinicians, and researchers.
