Overview

While psychology is one of the three most likely majors to spur individuals to seek a graduate degree, according to the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, more than half of all psychology majors enter the workforce with options.

As a major in the Psychology program of Johnson & Wales University, you’ll be able to experience our academic advantages. These include small classes; faculty who get to know you, mentor you, work with you to achieve success; experiential learning and clinical opportunities from early in your academic career; and access to valuable networks that our faculty — who bring their own practical experiences to the classroom — maintain.

Our curriculum also lets you select from a generous choice of free electives and minors, where you can explore additional interests and potential career tracks. Pursue an 8-course Counseling Psychology specialization to discover effective counseling practices in a supervised clinical environment, or choose to study the theories and techniques of group therapy, crisis management, marriage and family, addiction or case management.
