What Can You Do With a Psychology Degree?

You will likely need more than an AA-T. Most of these careers require at least a bachelor’s degree. Many require professional training after your 4-year degree, and either a master’s or doctorate. The fields are fascinating and complex, and the work is rewarding and interesting. Your AA-T from Copper Mountain College is a great first step toward a career as:

  • Psychologist
  • Social worker
  • Market researcher
  • Advertising agent
  • Child care worker
  • Teacher
  • Career counselor
  • Writer
  • Lawyer

Understand the Human Mind

Learn how humans think, feel, and behave, in all our complexity. Compare and contrast the theoretical perspectives of psychology as you apply those perspectives to interpersonal, social, and work-related skills. Learn how research is conducted and sound data gathered. After you earn your degree, continue your education at a CSU school and get a head start on your career.

A Bright Future

Psychology is an important and growing field. Many careers benefit from a psychology background, not just being a psychologist. Everyone from career counselors to social workers to marketing professionals use psychology in their work. Even if you’re not sure what work you will take up, psychology is a solid foundation.
