General Graduate School and Career Resources
The Psychology Undergraduate Advising Office can provide general information regarding graduate school and careers in the field of Psychology or other health related fields. However, the UCLA Career Center is the designated campus resource for post-graduate planning and opportunities. It’s recommended that students meet with a Career Counselor for more in-depth information and guidance regarding future graduate school or career plans. The Career Center also has a recently recorded workshop that reviews careers in Psychology.
