Well, you can look at that two ways. You can do absolutely "nothing" with a psychology degree and you can do "anything!" I have a bachelor's degree in Family Studies...people used to ask me what I can do with that and I'd say "uh........well.....run a day care center?" While degrees in human development are rarely listed as minimum qualifications for jobs, these types of degrees prepare you to work effectively with people, a skill that essential to just about every profession. I ended up in education, but my degree has helped me enormously in the work place as well as in my personal life. Understanding how people think, learn, and feel is highly underrated and even if a psychology degree doesn't apply directly to a particular profession, it will serve you well in life I think. Good luck!
