The Psychology Program at the University of Montevallo offers students excellent preparation in the field of Psychology, equipping them, upon graduation, for entry into graduate school or into a professional career. Psychology majors may also be interested in the Psychology/Social Work double major.
Career opportunities for graduates of the Psychology Program are interesting and varied. Some graduates have found employment with agencies working with mental health, substance abuse, adolescent treatment, nursing homes or senior citizens’ programs, and with state and/or federal programs. Other graduates have gone into industrial market research, hospital administration, employee assistance, counseling, or law school. Still others have chosen the field of education as the way to use their Psychology training. Teaching Psychology at the high school or college level, pursuing graduate training in school counseling and guidance, or graduate training in School Psychology are rewarding options.
The undergraduate curriculum is designed to cover the major areas of Psychology. For students interested in attending graduate school in Psychology, there are opportunities to engage in individual research projects with professors.
