Where can Psychology take me?
Few fields have the range of interests that psychology does. The UM-Flint Psychology program will expose you to a variety of topics, including social psychology, behavioral research, statistics, pathology, and biological psychology. Our students have a desire to investigate the behaviors and mental processes of humans and can build an exceptional foundation for a variety of careers.
As has long been true, UM-Flint Psychology offers excellent preparation for continued graduate work in psychology or other fields, such as business, medicine, and computer science. Many employers are interested in psychology majors because they have skills and experience in statistics and experimental design. In addition, employers of all kinds want and need your communication and interpersonal skills; your ability to collect, organize, analyze and interpret data; and, perhaps most important, your strong understanding of human behavior. As a result, many psychology majors find jobs in human resource departments or working as recruiters for large organizations and companies.
