Careers and Internships

Professional careers and opportunities continue to expand for holders of graduate degrees: counseling, health psychology, clinical psychology, industrial psychology, school psychology and more. Students also can choose course work to prepare for graduate programs outside psychology leading to professional specializations in business, social work, law, public health, medicine and education. Many students continue with graduate study in preparation for teaching or research careers.

Many enter career positions in areas such as mental health, educational services, social work and personnel work. Others obtain positions in conventional business or social service settings not directly related to psychology, but in which psychological knowledge and skills may be applied.

Rockford University offers a wide variety of internship opportunities for psychology students including opportunities in substance abuse, foster care, adoption, nursing homes and preschool.
