I agree with the posters below. I have a BA in Psychology with several national honors, and it is very difficult to get a job in this field. In order to practice any sort of clinical or patient therapy, you must have a minimum of a MA or have the certifications required by your field. I'm going into Substance Abuse Counseling and all I need is a certificate to practice -- and a good foot in the door. But that's Washington state.. I don't know the policies of your location. The PsyD program is a wonderful idea, as you can work towards your MA and your Doctorates all in one foul swoop. I would recommend researching your field and establishing what you're going to need to be the most successful. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the bottom line is that you're going to need a minimum of M.A. Good Luck!
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've never heard of "BA Psychology." You get a Bachelor's Degree IN Psychology, and Bachelor's Degree is abbreviated: BA... I have a BA in Psychology.
You could work for some social service agencies or work any job that asks for a college degree or BA degree. Just look on careerbuilder.com or monster.com.
I think the most you can get is be a lecturer in a university or if you get an MA in psychology you can be a professor.
There isn't much with a BA/BS in psychology you can do. You have to go on to grad work to become a psychologist.
youd want to go into either forensic psycology (if it exists at the school you want) or just regular psychology
It appears to be a bachelor or arts degree (BA) with psychology as the major program of study.
for me, UST. just check out their website.
depends what you want to do.
Yes. Many MBA programs actively seek and accept graduates BA or BS of psychology.
The college/university may require you to go back and take undergrad classes in psychology before grad work. Since you didn't do a BA/BS in psychology you wouldn't have some of the foundation classes required for grad work.
You just pick either one . It does not matter!
A BA stands for Bachelor of Arts degree (BA). Psychology is a field of study (major) related to human behavior and mental process. Thus, the degree is a bachelor of arts with a major program of study in psychology.
A bachelor's degree in psychology is a BA, not a BS. There are graduate programs as well like the Masters degree. Doctorate degrees are divided into two: PhD and PsyD. The difference is that with a Ph.D a person can work in clinical work as well as academia. However with a PsyD the only work available is in the clinical field. The reason is that PhD students are involved in research, unlike the PsyD students.You can have a BS in psychology. It's a Bachelor's of Science. In order to have a BS in psychology your major would be Psychology but you would have to minor in a math or science. I would have to say a BS is better.
BA, as far as I know.
There is no better. Depends what you future goals are. Pick the degree which fits your future goals. Want a study in Adolescent BiPolar Disorder or Dual Diagnosis study which requires a BS or A Ba. So you can work with either a BS or a BA??
It's probably to make you more well-rounded (and maybe better at spelling).
Example: Bachelor of arts in psychology.
Waterloo has really good program for Psychology. It has both BA and BSc degrees to choose from.
Anything with a BA Bachelor's of Arts compared to BS Bachelor's Science. Also known as the soft (BA) and Hard (BS) degrees.ExamplesBA degrees# Psychology # Sociology # Art BS degrees# Math # Computer Sciences # Biology
