MU Psych Central – The Job Myth

Is it possible to find a job in Psychology?

 

by Dr Nicolle Mayo - June 15, 2015

The Mansfield University Psychology Department supports and hosts “MU Psych Central”, a feature dedicated to sharing psychological research with Tioga County that is relevant and applicable to daily life.

Today’s feature highlights the variety of job opportunities available in psychology, specifically at the Bachelor degree level. Although many more careers are available for those with Master’s and Doctorate degrees, having a background in psychology opens many doors for working with people in multiple contexts. Many Mansfield University psychology students have utilized local sites for gaining internship experience and even securing jobs after graduation. Gaining this experience, whether volunteer or not, hones in on improving important work-related skills, and closes the gap between academia and the real world.

Mansfield’s psychology department encourages students to expand their horizons, take risks, and explore areas of interest they want to pursue through internships. Most students who have experienced internships positively report a newfound knowledge and skill improvement. Others have disclosed that this opportunity forced them to face and overcome challenges within a supportive setting. Still, a few have also realized that they do not want to work in a particular area based on their internship role. The majority of students are satisfied with their decision to intern and encourage their peers to pursue this avenue as well.

The Mansfield University psychology department includes Dr. Gretchen Sechrist, Department Chair and Associate Professor, who specializes in Social Psychology, Dr. Joy Patricia Burke, who holds expertise in educational psychology and specializes in school counseling, Dr. Brian Loher, Professor, our Human Resource Management specialist, Dr. Francis Craig, Professor, expert in Mind/Body Health, Dr. Karri Verno, Associate Professor, who specializes in Lifespan Development and Forensic Psychology and Nicolle Mayo, Assistant Professor, expert in Marriage and Family Therapy.
