Well-Prepared For Careers or Graduate School
Imagine yourself in jobs like these: substance abuse counselor, forensic psychologist, probation and parole officer, domestic violence prevention advocate, Early Head Start home visitor. Graduates work in social services agencies, the court system, schools, hospitals–anywhere infants, children, teens, adults, or senior citizens need assistance and support.
A degree in Applied Psychology and Human Services from Lyndon provides students with a strong foundation in psychological and developmental theory and the hand-on experience to prepare them for jobs like these—and for entrance into graduate programs. Many of our students have gone on to pursue Masters Degrees in psychology, social work, human services, or counseling.
A survey of recent graduates shows that alumni are already making a difference: 94 percent of our 2012 degree recipients indicate they are employed or have been accepted into graduate school, and 88 percent reported being employed in their chosen field.
