Career Paths

We have asked a few of our recent Psychology PhD alumni to help our current and prospective students by sharing their career choices and the paths they took to get there. Below you see examples of the careers they have chosen (so far). As you’ll see, our PhD grads become scientists in many different settings. These graduates are happy to answer questions and provide advice to you, and so their email addresses are also provided. Please feel free to contact them!
