Psychology: Career Concentrations
Career concentrations are similar to minors — with the difference being that a minor is taken in one department (for example, one might minor in anthropology) and a concentration follows a career theme throughout several departments.
Bloomsburg University offers many career concentrations. The University Policy for Concentrations describes the program this way:
Career concentrations are multidisciplinary advisement programs to help students select course to develop appropriate skills and knowledge to prepare for entry and mobility in specific professions or careers. For example, career advisory committees exist in areas such as community services, public administration, gerontology, and environmental management and planning.
Here are a few of the concentrations which are popular with Psychology students:
- Family, Children & Youth — Contact Mary Katherine Duncan, Ph.D., professor of psychology
- Gerontology — Contact Marion Mason, Ph.D., professor of psychology
