Jobs with a Degree in Psychology

Here are suggestions from various WikiAnswers contributors:

  • 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.
