A psychology degree from Simpson offers a diverse area of study that includes social processes, learning, memory, personality, human development and psychological disorders. At Simpson, every psychology major gets hands on experience, whether its using our electroencephalogram (EEG) machine, conducting a research project or completing an internship prior to graduation. 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 Wisconsin-Stout, University of Minnesota and State University of New York-Albany. A degree in psychology prepares you for a myriad of career choices or further study in fields like education, counseling, business and mental health.  

Great options for campus involvement include Psychology Club — a social group that offers educational and volunteer opportunities. And students are encouraged to join Psi Chi, a national psychology honors society.
