- This is influenced by many factors. One example is the state you live in and what the state requirements are as far as licensure for psychotherapists or counselors.
- In Arizona, you must have a Masters degree to be licensed unless you were grandfathered in before the law changed. You should check with your state's board of behavioral health. They should be of assistance. You may be able to work at a large agency as a case worker, client advocate, or counselor. The board should be able to give you more ideas. For better prospects, consider going for a Masters in psychology or counseling. The University of Phoenix offers an excellent counseling program.
- You can get a job with a degree in psychology almost anywhere that does not require special license or training in addition to your BS or BA. For instance, you can work as a human services associate in State or Local Government, you can work for some mental health providers as a general case manager, or you can work as a residential staff person at many inpatient and outpatient mental health, developmental disability, or youth detention facilities.
- You can use your psychology degree to get jobs in human resources, administration, advertising, human services, criminal justice services, etc. There are many ways that you can market your specific knowledge and training towards a profession or job market with a degree that spans as many areas as psychology.
- Well I'm doing my BA in psych right now. The short answer is that if you want a job related to the degree, not a hell of a lot. To work as a psychologist, you need a phD, as a social worker you need an MSW, but there are some office jobs that will hire anyone with a bachelor degree of any kind. Also, if you're in the US (I'm not), you can do a PsyD program and become a psychologist.
- If you are interested in psychology, you can go for 2 years and become and RN (registered nurse) and go on to get your BA in psych. After that, you can do pretty much the same thing as someone with a masters or phD in psych. This way, you end up spending less time and money in school, and if the psych aspect doesn't work out for you, you can work as a nurse in pretty much any dept anywhere you want.
- I am a dentist, but I also have a degree in psychology. HR & Recruitment is a big one, and journalism and marketing. I personally use a psychologist regularly to help me deal with my teenage patients, though that is quite rare.
- You can do a lot of things with psychology. If you are interested in marketing, you always can apply for online dating websites that always work with people who know psychology and human behavior to attract more people and to find the ways to match couples.
- The good news is there are plenty of things that you can do with your bachelor's degree in psychology. You just won't be a working psychologist. Statistics tell us that only about 25 percent of undergraduate psychology majors nationally go on to graduate school and become a psychologist, or go to medical school and start a practice as a psychiatrist. Here are the top 10 occupations that employ students with only a bachelor's degree in psychology: Top- or mid-level managers, executives and administrators, Sales, Social Work, Management-related occupations, Personnel, training and human resources or labor-relations, Administrative jobs, Insurance, real estate and business services, Marketing, Registered nurse, pharmacist, therapist and physician's assistant, Accountant, auditor and other financial specialists, As you review the list, you'll notice that most of these jobs involve dealing with people. Since psychology is the study of human behavior and organizational behavior, a 4-year degree in the field offers you a good understanding of people, their motivations and why they act as they do. In addition, psychology teaches students to think critically as well as creatively, so graduates generally have excellent communications skills. This kind of versatility is desirable in professions that demand interacting with other human beings, which opens the door to most professions. So hold your bachelor in psychology degree high-it offers you more opportunities than you may have ever imagined.
- While a bachelor's degree would not be sufficient qualification to become a professional psychologist, it is relevant to understanding people, and therefore would be appropriate if you wanted to work in the field of human resources or personnel management. Of course, different companies have different requirements, so there is no guarantee for any specific position. A lot simply depends upon job interviews, and whether the executive seeking to fill the position gets the impression that you would be a helpful and responsible employee.

A bachelor's degree in what? The BA or BS isn't what it used to be. If you check the paper or Monster, you'll see that a college degree is required just to get into an interv…iew on some pretty basic jobs, jobs that could be had with a High school diploma just 20 years ago. Employers like to see specific training in a certain area. Where years ago a BA in almost anything could land you a management job, today companies are looking for advanced degrees for their higher level positions. If you're about to graduate, you may wish to pick a specific field of study and go on for a Master's degree. If you are just starting out, consider looking for summer intern jobs in your field of study. Employers like practical experience just as much as they like degrees. A bachelors degree generally qualifies a person for a position in which other candidates do not posses a bachelors degree. In other words, it is an honest self-marketing tool.
What kind of job can you get if you earned a bachelors degree with a double major in sociology and psychology?
Depends on the state in which you reside and what the local regulations are. However, with a double major in psych/soc you can be a social worker for… a local office in the DHS, or you can work as a rehab therapist with the psych degree. you can make decent money doing both but to rake in the large check you need a masters in both. hope that helps you.
With only the bachelors degree you could get a job in human resources, corrections, probation, parole, counselling, research, health services, early childhood education, etc. …You could also go on to get a higher degree working towards a job as a professional psychologist along with many other things.

A bachelor's degree in most areas can require between 120 to 128 college credits particular to a specific program of study. This would be based on a college or university tha…t operates on a regular two semester academic year which is the most common. For institutions that operate on a tri-semester or quarter-semester it would be quite different. That being said, the Bachelor's degree - in most cases - is designed as a four year program of study, provided the student is full-time and follows their chosen program of study as prescribed by the college or university, and also provided the individual does not require prerequisite or developmental coursework as a result of basic skills testing. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is no less than 12 credits per semester. However, to complete the degree within the four years, a credit load of approximately 15 to 18 credits is recommended. For individuals who work or who have other responsibilities that would prohibit them from attending full-time, completion of the degree may take twice as long. Still, some of this time can be cut down by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions. In addition, the bachelors and associate degrees are referred to as undergraduate degrees while the masters and doctorate degrees referred to as graduate degrees.
Normally, it takes 4 years to get a bachelors degree.
