Wondering what you can do with a 3 year BA in Psychology? A university degree in psychology prepares students to move directly into a job and find work in a variety of areas. Not only do psychology students have an understanding of human behaviour (and when wouldn’t that come in handy?), they also have useful skills in data management, written communication, and presentations, along with the ability to organize, condense, and disseminate complex information in the workplace. Students might also choose to attend a post-graduate college program that complements the skills and knowledge they gained at university with applied skills for the workforce.
A few of the popular post-graduate options for psychology graduates are:
Entering the workforce in a variety of disciplines (e.g., business in human resources, marketing or sales, social work, human services)
Attending a post-graduate college program

TIP: Post-Graduate College Programs You might wonder about the logic behind going to college after university, but actually this path makes a lot of sense. Colleges and universities are designed to teach students different skills. You will graduate from university with a lot of theoretical knowledge and skills in many areas, but universities don't focus on hands-on training. Post graduate college programs are designed to do just that - they honour the work you've already done at the university level, and provide students with very specialized applied skills training. Students who complete a degree and a post-graduate program are very employable.
