Psychology is a diverse scientific discipline concerned with mental processes, behavior, and applications of its principles to enhance the human condition. Opportunities for work in psychology are expanding in number and scope, especially for those with graduate degrees, while an undergraduate degree remains excellent preparation for continued graduate work in psychology or other fields such as business, law, or medicine.

At the undergraduate level, the study of psychology is good preparation for numerous professions. Many employers are interested in the skills that psychology majors can bring to the workplace. Psychologists contribute solutions to problems through careful collection of data, analysis of data, and development of intervention strategies—in other words, by applying scientific principles, the hallmark of psychology.
