Psychology and Sociology

At the end of 2012, the US Bureau of Labor statistics reported that "employment of psychologists is expected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than average for all occupations."

"Job prospects should be best for those who have a doctoral degree in an applied specialty and those with a specialist or doctoral degree in school psychology."

"Some psychologists work independently, doing research or working with patients or clients. Others work as part of a healthcare team, collaborating with physicians, social workers, and others to treat illness and promote overall wellness. Those in private practice have their own offices and set their own schedules, often working evenings and weekends."

Most students in the Department of Psychology and Sociology find jobs in administrative support, public affairs, education, business, sales, service industries, health, the biological sciences and computer programming.
