Big school research opportunities meet small school personalized attention.
As a Psychology major, you’ll choose from one of four tracks to tailor your major for your career goals. You'll stay busy by conducting research in our state-of-the-art research lab and presenting your findings at the Student Research Symposium each year. Like many Ursuline students before you, you may have your proposal accepted to present at a regional and national conference. In your time here, you might also intern with the Cleveland Clinic Center for Autism, earn an induction into Ursuline’s Psi Chi chapter, or find inspiration from Ursuline alumni as you build your professional network.
Scholarships specifically for psychology majors are available to support academic excellence and travel to research conferences.
In recent years, Psychology majors have graduated to pursue graduate school and careers at the Cleveland Clinic, social services agencies, police departments, and research centers. Others have matriculated to graduate programs to further their education with an advanced degree and work in private counseling practices. Two recent alumnae are both seeking their Forensic Psychology Master’s degrees at the University of Denver. Another is an Industrial/Organizational Psychologist having graduated from Xavier University. A fourth is now a psychology professor, having earned her Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University.
