Marky Lloyd’s Careers in Psychology Page

Filed under: Career and Employment,North America — Admin @ 11:47 am

Welcome to the Careers in Psychology page. My primary motive in developing this site is to help undergraduate students learn what they can do with a degree in psychology. (Graduate students may find information of interest in the section, “Selected Web Sites Containing Career and Graduate School Information of Interest to Psychology Majors.”) The resources on this page focus on: (1) careers in psychology at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level and (2) academic information about psychology at the bachelor’s and graduate levels. Much of this material was developed for use in Careers in Psychology, a one-credit, required course for psychology majors at Georgia Southern University (see an old course syllabus).

I retired from the Georgia Southern University Psychology Department in 2004, so the GSU-only portion of this web site has been retired also. However, you can check out the current faculty, curriculum, honors, and related information about the psychology program at Georgia Southern here at the Georgia Southern University Psychology Department web site.

Psychologists

Filed under: Career and Employment,Education,North America — Admin @ 12:59 am

Significant Points

* More than 1 out of 4 psychologists are self-employed, nearly four times the average for professional workers.
* Most specialists, including clinical and counseling psychologists, need a doctoral degree; school and industrial-organizational psychologists need a master’s degree.
* Opportunities in psychology are limited for those with only a bachelor’s degree.

Nature of the Work

Psychologists study the human mind and human behavior. Research psychologists investigate the physical, cognitive, emotional, or social aspects of human behavior. Psychologists in health service provider fields provide mental health care in hospitals, clinics, schools, or private settings. Psychologists employed in applied settings such as business, industry, government or non-profits provide training, conduct research, design systems, and act as advocates for psychology.
