Human Services Concentration

BA in Psychology Program Curriculum 

Throughout the psychology major, you establish a deep knowledge of human development, social and cognitive psychology, and abnormal psychology and acquire experience applying statistics and research methods in psychology. 

To cap off your studies, you complete an internship and capstone project where you gain first-hand practice in a professional setting and start preparing for your career success.

Career Outlook for Psychology Majors 

Your BA in Psychology is your first step toward your career goals. At Fisher, you establish hands-on experience that is crucial for success in graduate and postgraduate studies in psychology and related fields.  The concentration in Human Services provides additional opportunities in various areas of social services.

Some graduates also move directly into the workforce in settings including child care, social service agencies, drug treatment centers, youth and adult residential care centers, crisis centers, community mental health centers, senior citizen centers, and state and local and federal agencies serving families.

Within a year of graduation, 95% of Fisher graduates are working or in an advanced degree program.
