Students who graduate with a major in psychology have many career options. Psychology majors are prepared for careers in human services, human resources, research, counseling, and other fields.
Start planning your career while you have plenty of time left in school. That way, you can tailor your experiences here to make sure that you will love your career later. The best place to start is with your adviser.
One good way to get started is through our internship program. An internship can help you choose with what population you want to work, can give you local contacts (many students have received jobs through their internships), and can give you a boost if you choose to go to graduate school.
There are also many local agencies and businesses that have hired psychology graduates from Buffalo State in the past and many more that might hire you if your interests and skills match their needs.
