With a background in psychology, graduates find many opportunities in both entry-level positions and specialty areas. While the immediate image of a psychologist is a counselor or therapist, there are actually many career options for a graduate with a degree in psychology. Some require graduate education, while others are accessible to someone with a Bachelor's degree in psychology. Messiah Psychology graduates are diverse in their career choices or graduate school plans after finishing their undergraduate studies.
