Overview

All students pursuing an undergraduate degree in psychology participate in a supervised field experience that is designed around their interests and future career plans in psychology. 

Students who choose the clinical and research track are exposed to current research paradigms in psychology and have the opportunity to propose, design, and participate in a research project. The campus’ close proximity to Boston, a leading hub for innovation and research, gives students access to the latest information and research in the field of psychology. Finally, students at Eastern Nazarene College are encouraged to participate in clubs and activities that promote student learning and development like PsiChi.

Career Paths

Psychology ranks among the top three majors at the undergraduate level. Psychology jobs are expected to soar between 2014-2024 at a rate of 19 percent. This is due in part to the need for trained psychologists in mental health centers, schools, social service agencies, mental health centers, and business. 

Although the most common career goal of undergraduate psychology students is to become a psychologist or counselor, there are many paths a student can pursue with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Many students enter the workforce as a specialist or technician in human and social services or education.  Some jobs students commonly pursue upon graduation include case manager, human resources manager, school counselor, laboratory assistant, and career counselor.
