Careers in Clinical Psychology

A degree in clinical psychology can open the door to a variety of careers. As demonstrated by the range of positions held by our own alumni, remaining in higher education or conducting post-doctoral research are not the only choices. In addition to research and/or teaching positions at major universities or smaller liberal arts colleges and research centers, our graduates hold positions in private practice as clinical psychologists, as well as child psychologists. Others work as school counselors or in psychiatry.
