What are graduates of NWC's Psychology Department doing now?

Most students who specialize in Psychology at Northwest College eventually transfer to a four-year school to complete a bachelor's degree. Many students transfer to the University of Wyoming Psychology Department, with whom we have a close working relationship and where a number of our graduates have been especially successful. Other graduates have transferred easily to numerous large and small public and private schools outside of Wyoming. If you do well in your studies at Northwest College, you will be well prepared to enter advanced studies in psychology at any college or university in the country.
