This differs slightly by college, but starting from undergraduate, the time to get a PHD is going to be 7-9 years. Here's a graph showing time spent in postgrad to get a history PHD, which is comparable: http://www.historians.org/perspectives/issues/2006/0602/images/RBT-PhD-Fig1.jpg

It takes anywhere from 6 to 10 years. You will first need to get an undergraduate degree, not necessarily in Psychology. You will then need to get your masters before you take a PhD course, which in itself could take 2 years or more.

Typically five to six years after a B.S. degree.

It could take approximately two years provided you take the program as prescribed by the college or university. Some of this will depend on how long it takes you to complete the dissertation successfully.


It take up to 8 years. And if you want to get a phd, add an extra 3-7 years.


The PhD typically takes four years post bachelor's degree to complete.


It usually takes anywhere between 5-7 years to earn your PhD in psychology, depending on whether you're full-time, the university's program, and other factors.

There are many differences between a PsyD and a PhD in psychology. The main difference is the emphasis on research and practice. People with PhDs in psychology do extensive psychological research, while people with a PsyD can do practical work, such as therapy. In general, a PhD in psychology indicates more knowledge in the field. PhD programs for psychology require more funding, while PsyD have less funding. It takes more years to earn a PhD in psychology than earning a PsyD in psychology.


Typically four years, to take the general education requirements and then to major in psychology. Some can do it in fewer years than that, if they enter college with advanced standing (due to testing out of requirements, or having taken college level courses in high school). Bear in mind that a bachelors in psychology is a starting point to being a psychologist, one must get a PhD in psychology to practice. The PhD program typically takes at least 5 years of graduate school AFTER the bachelor's degree.

YOU HAVE TO STAY IN SCHOOL AND GET A LICENSE IN PSYCHOLOGY!!!!!!!!!!!!


If you are accepted into a PhD program, definitely.


You can be a psychologist and have your own practice, seeing patients. Or you can become a professor of psychology.






A degree in psychology and to be a therapist a PhD .


PhD programs usually take 4 to 5 years to complete.


Yes, you will absolutely need a license to practice counseling psychology. This is after you earn your masters or PhD.


You have to gain admission to take PHD from JNU.



Typically the bachelors degree comes first. After that comes the masters, then PhD. However, there are a number of colleges and universities that offer a combined masters and PhD. Still however you look at this, the PhD will take approximately four years to complete beyond the bachelors degree.


It depends on what you want to help them with. Psychology, therepy. A PHD would help.


it is upto you to do PhD after M.phil as It may take a long time,But by clearing NET conducted by CSIR/GATE you can do PhD in 3-4 years which exceeds if you are doing PhD after M.phil


I assume you meant "to become a psychologist" I will assume clinical psychology. Here is the rough breakdown. BA or BS- 4 years PhD in clinical psych- 4-6 years Many people get a MA or MS between a BA and PhD which takes another 2 years or so.


Yes they do. A PhD is a doctoral degree and the highest level of educational attainment. Thanks indeed for your answer. My question was not whether Japanese universities award PhD or not but whether the universities award: PhD or Doctoral degree in every field or not. Waiting for your answer. Clarification: Doctor of Psychology and NOT PhD (Psychology) is an example of what I mean by doctoral degree in every field.
