Notable Alumni

The Bachelor of Science degree provides students with broad based knowledge of the field of Psychology. This preparation should provide a solid foundation for students planning on pursuing graduate training in a mental health field, including psychology, social work, and counseling as well as a variety of other fields. A recent alumni survey indicated that 88% of students who applied to graduate programs were accepted and 100% indicated that their psychology training at UNO prepared them as well or better than most of their graduate school colleagues. Of those working in other fields, 77% agreed that their training in psychology at UNO has been useful in their current employment.

The combined training in the MS and Ph.D. programs should enable the students to obtain post-doctoral placements and/or employment in academic, research, and applied settings. A recent alumni survey indicated that UNO’s psychology department has been very successful in achieving these goals. Despite our small size, our group of notable alumni is impressive:
