If you follow the 'typical' educational pattern of most

psychologists (bachelor's degree - 4 yrs, masters - 2, doctorate -

2),then you are looking at 8 years of study, beginning to end,

barring any setbacks. Some schools may offer accelerated programs

where your master's and doctoral studies are combined into one

continuous program (my alma mater - Old Dominion University - is

one such school). If you are still in high school, ask your

guidance counselor for information about schools that have

psychology degree programs.
