A Psychology degree is often used as a steppingstone toward a graduate degree; however, a B.A. in Psychology from Nichols College can also be applied to many jobs across a variety of fields. 

Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology are versatile. At Nichols, our Psychology majors are known for their strong communication skills, understanding of human behavior, problem-solving skills, and ability to collect, organize, and analyze information.

It’s also the perfect way to start a variety of great careers, which is why Nichols puts so much value on experiential learning opportunities and internships. 100% of our students graduate with at least 1 credit-bearing experience on their resume.
