Psychology is one of the most popular undergraduate majors, and each year about 150 students graduate with a degree in psychology. We also award a half-dozen master’s degrees and, as participants in the Virginia Consortium Program in Clinical Psychology, award several doctoral (Psy.D.) degrees. The College of William & Mary discontinued the Psy.D. program after academic year 2010/2011.
About half of our recent Psychology majors have gone on to study psychology, law, business, nursing, or another academic discipline at the master’s or doctoral level. With their broad exposure to all areas of psychology, our alumni have a wide choice of careers.
All of our alumni are invited to the department’s annual Homecoming reception with faculty and current students. This is held in October on the same weekend as the College’s Homecoming.
We also invite alumni and friends to check out our newsletter for current information about students, alumni, faculty, and departmental news. We hope you’ll also send us your news to include on our alumni page. News items we receive are posted to our alumni updates web page.
