Hi Kemi,

Students who complete graduate-level psychology degrees have far more job opportunities. A master’s degree may lead to jobs as research and clinical assistants, while a doctorate is necessary for anyone who wants to work with patients in a clinical setting or move into a research or academic position. Many degree programs allow students to focus on a specialty area, including child development, abnormal psychology, counseling, social psychology, and cognition.

Best and good luck in your choices!!

You could also look into jobs with similar degrees such as counseling and social work. The degree you want really depends on how you imagine working with people. I chose counseling because I am interested in more one on one existential talk therapy and group psychotherapy as well as school counseling. I decided not to go for the doctorate in psych because I wanted to stay away from a lot of diagnosing and research.
