Inside Psychology

Similar to other social experts and technicians, psychologists devise hypotheses and collect data to test their validity. Many different types of psychologists exist, such as developmental psychologists, clinical psychologists and child psychologists. Some other areas of occupation in psychology include family, environmental, experimental, counseling or forensic psychology. Individuals may become psychologists because they're interested in helping others through mentally trying experiences or situations.

Education Information

Though a psychologist most commonly needs to possess a graduate degree, programs are available at every level. Undergraduate programs might be used as preparation for master's or doctoral degree programs or for entry-level work as aides and assistants. Students can choose to specialize in one area of psychology, such as education or health; alternatively, they can focus on general psychology. In addition, the American Psychological Association states that aspiring psychologists must meet their states' requirements to obtain licensure and practice (ww.apa.org).
