The Bradley Advantage

As a psychology major, you study issues that affect people at all life stages and learn how to positively address concerns. The program is rooted in research, which means you can work beside professors on projects you can then present at conferences. You can also conduct research on grant-funded projects during the summer since Bradley offers graduate degrees in counseling.

Successful Outcomes

The psychology program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce or graduate school. In recent years, almost all students found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. Recent graduates are working for behavioral health centers, nonprofits and the U.S. military. Others are attending graduate school at the University of Chicago, University of Iowa and the University of Denver.
