The beautiful thing about a degree in psychology, which is what I have, is that it is a relevant degree in almost every career area. I know psych majors who are lawyers, policemen, counselors, businessmen and the list goes on. Employers are open to psychology majors because they know that psychology courses require strong critical thinking, researching and analyzing of data. All of these skills can be transferred to an innumerable amount of career paths. The bottom line is that you are not chained down to a mental health career with a psychology degree, there are many open doors. I myself, with my BA in psych, am in the midst of researching/ applying to law schools. Feel free to send me further questions.
