Brandon’s Answer

I think it depends on what your route is. A lot people I know who want to be psychologists went to college for 4 years and studied psychology and then went to grad school to get a masters which usually takes 4 years. Overall, like most doctors it will take close to 10 years to become a doctor if you are gradually consistent in your schooling.

Maya L.’s Answer

There are many branches of psychology.

I've known people who spend 2 years studying social work, and then open up their own practices as mental health professionals.

School psychologists only need to go to school for about 3 years, but then you can only practice in a school.

There are some masters programs that allow you to practice specific types of psychology, but terminal psychology masters programs tend to feed into doctoral programs.

Hassan’s Answer

In TX it requires a Bachelor, Masters, and PHD or PsyD degree and so that will likely take 8-10 years.
