Successful Careers

The Baylor Ph.D. Program in Psychology is primarily an academic program: we expect that most of our graduates will ultimately accept academic positions, teaching and/or conducting research. Approximately 90% of our Ph.D. graduates (since 1990) are now in academic positions (post-doc and/or faculty). The remainder are employed in industry directly related to their graduate training. Of course, it is impossible to predict what the employment market will look like in 5 years. Our recent graduates have been quite successful in the marketplace. For those with more applied interests, we have in the past been able to arrange graduate internships for senior students with several national companies.
