Social Impact Careers with a Psychology Degree

There is a world of opportunity for Psychology majors to make an impact using what they learn in college – and it doesn’t necessarily have to be in a clinical or social work setting. If you’re having trouble identifying alternative career pathways as a Psychology major, this article may provide some ideas and context.

If any of these pathways interest you and you are looking for an internship to explore it further, reach out to the Career Center or schedule an appointment with our Peer Career Coach staff on Handshake.

Note that the views expressed in this article may not be universally shared, nor is this list of career pathways an exhaustive one, BUT it can provide a nice starting point as you are considering a career in social impact (or other fields) that puts to use your Psychology degree.
