Psychology is an excellent major to prepare students for a wide variety of potential career paths including psychology, medicine, law, and public service jobs, as well as other careers where an understanding of human behavior and motivation is valuable, including careers in business, marketing, and human resources. The Psychology Department at the University of Mississippi has a number of unique strengths that set us apart from other programs.
Clinical Psychology uses the scientist-practitioner model and values the integration of science and practice. Students become competent researchers and clinicians whose work is guided by empirical foundations and scientific values of psychology. Behavioral and cognitive-behavioral approaches characterize the clinical training and supervision offered, and evidence-based practice is prioritized.
Experimental Psychology leads to careers in a broad spectrum of established and emerging fields from careers in health sciences in research/medical administration or drug development, to service careers in the public or private sectors, to academic careers in teaching and research.
