Psychology student looking to break in to Cybersecurity

I am considering a degree in Applied Psychology and I am hoping to apply what I’ve learned to help organizations combat cyber threats, particularly from the social engineering side of things. I’ve often wonder if IT security departments value employees with a Psychology background. I hear that most employers look for candidates with technical, IT backgrounds so I am wondering if the Applied Psych degree could help at all with getting a IT Sec job or if I am wasting my time. What do you guys think?
