Perhaps instead of practicing, you’re more interested in passing along what you’ve learned. With a median annual salary of $79,640, employment of postsecondary teachers is projected to grow 12 percent over the next decade.

Or you could pursue a career in other fields altogether. With the solid foundation of critical thinking and people skills a psychology degree provides, you’ll be well prepared to pursue a variety of professional careers – from front-line sales to back-office management.
