Earn A Psychology Degree OnlineStudents who graduate college with a degree in psychology have a lot of career options today. According to “The Top 10 Reasons to Major in Psychology,” an article that Susan Krauss Whitbourne, PhD., Wrote for Psychology Today, there are some very good reasons why a psychology degree leads to success.

“Workforce analyses of psychology majors show that psychology graduates do get jobs using their degree,” Dr. Whitbourne writes. “They may not be `psychologists’ until they complete their graduate training, but they put their psychology skills to use.”

She goes on to point out these findings that were published in a recent white paper from the American Psychological Association . . .

  • More than 40% of Bachelor’s-level psychologists work in for-profit jobs in business and industry.
  • Between 20-30% of bachelor’s-level psychologists work in educational institutions.
  • About 15-20% of bachelor’s-level psychologists work, respectively, in government and not-for-profit organizations.
