Alyssa’s Answer

Hi Morgan!

There are endless options for careers in Psychology. I, personally, used my degree in Psychology within the Human Resources field. If you are interested in pursuing a career in Psychology, you can either take a more traditional route of therapy based roles, or take the psychology research route. It really just depends what you are most interested in.

I have read this book and found it very helpful in explaining and differentiating careers in psychology: https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/careers-in-psychology/book265217

Regardless, I think a degree in Psychology can widely be translated as an asset in almost any field. It's the science of behavior and mind of people, and having an understanding of that will help you know matter what avenue you take.

Good luck!
