I came across an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal about the dissatisfaction of students majoring in psychology and their career paths (Light, 2010). According to a Wall Street Journal study, only 26% of psychology majors are “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with what’s available to them career-wise.

It can be frustrating to those at the bachelor’s level to feel that they are not as “marketable” as their peers majoring in other fields, especially in this tough economy. However, if students understand that learning about psychology equips them with important critical thinking skills and a broad understanding of human behaviors and the science behind it, then they will approach any career with confidence and an awareness of the unique skillset (see the University of Dayton link below) that psychology provides in preparing them to become “a well-rounded, well-educated citizen and person.”
