A common misconception among those pursuing a degree in psychology is that the degree will automatically lead to a career as a mental health care provider. While opportunities are available to those interested in seeking a career to help people struggling with mental well-being, there are also many nonclinical jobs for those with a graduate degree in psychology.

Psychology courses at Lafayette are offered in a variety of areas such as learning, perception, clinical, developmental, cognitive, social, health, and industrial/organizational areas. Along with biology, the Psychology Department also administers the neuroscience major.
