Enhance your online psychology degree with a concentration
Psychology is one of the most popular majors in the country, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. The strong academic foundation and critical thinking, communication and problem-solving skills it builds make this degree an excellent stepping stone into a number of careers, spanning a wide variety of fields.
Given the increasingly competitive market for jobs and professional schools, students are continuously looking for ways to set themselves apart. A great way to accomplish this is to enhance your psychology degree with a focus or concentration. Doing so not only helps you to stand out from the competition, but also provides you with an opportunity to get a more in-depth feel for one of the facets of psychology. This in-depth look allows you, in essence, to take a career path for a test drive. In addition, the experience you get can help you to better prepare to enter a graduate or professional program upon graduation.
