Education & Career Opportunities in Psychology and Mental Health

Accredited degree programs in psychology and mental health are offered at numerous colleges and universities. Students entering independent practice, teaching, research, and counseling positions typically earn a PhD or Doctor of Psychology (PsyD). Aspiring psychologists earning other psychology degrees (bachelor's or master's) can find employment within a variety of industrial facilities, schools, vocational and mental health centers. Every state licensing board requires successful completion of an examination for licensure as a psychologist. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the prospects for psychology and mental health jobs are expected to grow at the same rate as other employment and the best opportunities are for those who have earned a doctoral degree from a leading university in applied specialties such as health, counseling, or school psychology. In 2009, according to the BLS, clinical, counseling, and school psychologists earned a median annual salary of $66,040.
