Pathways for Australian psychology graduates


For students (both potential and current) the question is often phrased as “What can you do with an undergraduate psychology major (or degree)?” Landrum (2018) responded that this question can be complicated to unpack but doing so can be incredibly helpful. As a result, we feel this article will assist undergraduate students in particular by unpacking this question within the current Australian context.
