My undergraduate degree is in Psych... the degree is mostly useless unless you are going on toward a masters.

It would take 2 to 3 years of schooling, also known as college to earn a degree in Psychology. It is hard work for most people and exhausting. You would be glad once your done with the schooling, It is all worth it though.

First off let me state that we are by no means "TECHNICIANS"!! Let us get our terminology straight. If you are getting an Associates Degree & Pass your registry. You would then be known as a Radiology "Technologist"! You can now apply at some accredited University and go for a Bachelor's Degree in Radiology and if you really want to further your education, you can pursue a Master's Degree. Just keep in mind that times are hard and more than likely you will get PAID as if you received an Associates Degree. Why pay someone with a Bachelor's or Master's Degree more, when you can pay less with an Associates Degree. Hope this helps!

You could work as staff in a residential treatment center for kids, adolscents, or young adults (working directly with the clients/patients). You could work at a state mental hospital as a psych tech. You may possibly qualify for a SSW license depending on the state you are in, which would open a bunch of other employment doors for you.You can of course be a psychologist, after earning a PhD and being licensed by the state in which you want to practice.

It is not a really hard degree to obtain but you will have to work for it. It involves a lot of computer programming and logic courses.

There is no straight forward child psychology course, You must do a degree(3years) in psychology (between about 490 and 540 points depending on the college), then you must do between 1 to 2 years of experience in a practice or organisation, From there you apply to do clinical psychology(around 50 places in Ireland every year minimum of II1 DEGREE), this is 3 years. THEN you can go into child psychology which is even further study, research etc. in other words it is a very long path and there are very few places. Also even though there is a high demand for child psychologists in Ireland the government are not providing funding (you would probably have to go abroad for a job ATM). In other words unless you REALLY want it and work hard, its not a straight forward degree and extremely difficult.(trust me i know).
