Looking for a Career in Psychology? Thinking of study abroad?
When we hear the word Psychology it is easy to conjure a mental image of a patient lying on a couch and the wise-looking psychologist in the room uttering these words “…so how long have you been feeling this way…’ Do you really understand the huge range of options open to you in the field of psychology. Below I have listed ten careers that are related to the field of psychology. Many people who start out taking a psych degree end up in these kinds of jobs. This is a great study abroad option. We can help you find the best university to psychology.
Career or Vocational Counselor – They often start by looking at a client’s interests, job history, education, skills, and personality characteristics in order to determine which careers are a good match. They also help clients work on building skills, practicing interviews, improving resumes, and locating job openings. Assisting clients who are dealing with job loss or employment-related stress is also common.
School Psychologist – They work in educational settings to help children deal with emotional,academic, and social problems. Thanks to increased interest in the mental health of children and federal education legislation, school psychology has rapidly become one of the fastest growing fields. The demand for qualified school psychologists exceeds the number of candidates available, which means that job opportunities are plentiful.
Counselor – Counselors help a people with a wide variety of problems, including marriage, family, emotional, educational, and substance abuse issues. Nearly half of all counselors work in health care or social welfare settings.
Genetics Counselor – they help provide information about genetic disorders to couples and families. These professionals typically have graduate training in both genetics and counseling, and many have undergraduate degrees in areas such as psychology, social work, biology, nursing, and public health.
Forensic Psychologists apply psychology to the fields of criminal investigation and law. This has rapidly become one of the hottest psychology careers thanks to numerous portrayals in popular movies, television programs, and books. While the field may not be as glamorous as it is depicted in the media, forensic psychology is still an exciting career choice with a lot of potential for growth.
Engineering Psychologists use psychology to investigate how people interact with machines and other technology. These professionals use their understanding of the human mind and behavior to help design and improve technology, consumer products, work settings, and living environments
Clinical Psychologists assess, diagnose and treat clients suffering from psychological disorders. These professionals typically work in hospital settings, mental health clinics, or private practices.
Sports Psychologists focus on the psychological aspects of sports and athletics, including topics such as motivation, performance, and injury. The two major areas within sports psychology are centered on helping improve athletic performance or using sports to improve mental and physical health.
Industrial-organizational psychologists focus on workplace behavior, often using psychological principles to increase worker productivity and select employees that are best-suited for particular jobs. There are several different specialty areas within industrial-organizational psychology. For example, some I-O psychologists train and assess employees, while others evaluate job candidates.
Special Education Teacher – While slightly outside of a traditional psychology career, the field of special education offers a great deal of opportunity for those who enjoy helping children. Special education teachers work with students with a variety of disabilities. In order to become a special education teacher, you must have at least a bachelor’s degree and complete a teacher training program in special education. Because of the increased enrollments in special education programs and a shortage of qualified teachers, job demand is strong and expected to grow.
You might also like to consider that you can study an Arts degree (B.Arts) with a Psychology Major and combine that with another discipline (Business/Human Resource Management/Education/Linguistics) Unless you want to be a clinical psychologist you may want to choose a degree of this kind. If you are 100% sure you want to be a practicing clinical psychologist then you will need to complete a degree that is professionally recognized by the relevant professional body i.e. in Australia it is the Australian Psychologists Association (APA), in the U.S. it is American Psychologists Association (APA) and so on. So whatever program you choose, if it is necessary, then make sure it is professionally accredited.
Entry Requirements – these will vary depending on where you are applying. However you may be required to have high level Math and/or Psychology and a Natural Sciences subject. The IB score will also vary but will be in the vicinity of 34-37. You might also be surprised to learn that there is quite a lot of Math and, in particular, Statistics, as part of a degree in psychology. There are many pathway options as well if you find you don’t meet the entry requirements
