The degree is most appropriate for students who wish to develop a set of applied scientific and human relations skills that will prepare them for entry-level employment in a wide range of government and private human service organizations and agencies, and in business and industry. The degree is also suitable for students who wish to continue in their studies of psychology in graduate school, or who are interested in graduate or professional school in business, human services, law, or the social sciences.
