Career Development Courses

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences offers:
  • P199 Planning Your Psychology Career (1-cr) is required for all psychology majors. We encourage you to enroll in your sophomore year! Goals: Independently explore careers of interest to you, practice job search skills like networking and informational interviews; research internship experiences, write a professional resume, and plan for graduate school if that is in your future.
  • P299 Sophomore Honors Seminar (3-cr) is for high-achieving students who are planning to attend graduate school and/or enter a career in research. Faculty presentations will help students find a place in a laboratory assisting in research, in preparation for earning an Honors Degree. The course counts as the major careers course (in the place of P199); counts for Intensive Writing credit, and for the Hutton Honor's College. Registration is by permission, applications are available in the advising office.
  • P457 Taking Psychology to Business explores the many connections between psychological science and business. Taking Psychology to Business is a complement to P199, but it will not satisfy the departmental career class requirement.

The Career Development Center (CDC) and Arts & Sciences Career Services (ASCS) offer the following courses:
