Psychology graduates tend to have strong "people" skills, a valuable commodity in almost any profession. The application of these skills is not confined to the helping professions such as counseling and medicine, but is useful in such diverse fields as law, human services, community and public affairs, education, management, sales, advertising, marketing, service industries, research, and writing. Nationally, psychology is one of the top three most popular undergraduate majors in liberal arts colleges and universities.

For many psychology students the undergraduate degree is but a stepping stone to graduate study and a career in the profession of psychology.
