At Simpson, every psychology major gets hands on experience, whether its working on a research project or completing an internship. These experiences very likely contribute to the fact that we have a 100 percent placement rate in student applications to present research at the annual Midwestern Psychological Association Conference.  

More than 40 percent of Simpson psychology students go on to graduate school at places like Penn State University, University of Illinois, University of Northern Iowa, University of Minnesota and the University of Iowa. A degree in psychology prepares you for a myriad of career choices or further study in fields like education, counseling, business and mental health.
