Careers in Behavioral Science/Psychology
Behavioral Science/Psychology is the study of how people think and how those thoughts turn into behaviors. The behavioral sciences prepare students to think critically, design experiments, and produce research. The curriculum is designed to improve writing, communication, and analysis skills. Since so many industries depend on the understanding of human behavior, careers in this field vary widely. An increased interest in mental health and wellness has led to a rise in hiring for therapists, counselors, and more according to LinkedIn’s Economic Graph. Career options include social worker, occupational therapist, marketing specialist, creative writer, and teacher.
