Hi Aditi, I think Psychology and human studies have a lot more expanding up ahead! I think, compared to other fields, Psychology is still pretty young, and has a lot of room for growth and knowledge! I would look into countries that have contributed to psychological theories first, as they may be further developed knowledge than those that have come to psychology later. Personally, I would think Germany and America would have good programs, but I am not very knowledgeable as to the status of counseling/psychology in other countries. I have seen great resources in the UK as well online, so I think a good online search into the status of psychology/counseling could help you get an idea of what is out there. Good luck!

Jerome’s Answer

As long as there are humans and those humans have brains (I know, that's sometimes debatable) we will have psychologists. The field generally continues to grow over time, but the question for you is "What part of psychology interests you?" There are research psychologists (think rats in a maze), psychologists who work directly with patients (hospitalized and private-office), tons of specialties like child psychology, PTSD and trauma psychology, marital and family; the list goes on to include psychologists who work with advertising and corporations, industrial psychologists who specialize in how people view and work with things (products, often) and other specialties. That's just a sampling of what the field can offer.

The choice of a school and location will depend largely on the answer to the above question. Once you have a solid idea of what you're interested in doing, then try to contact someone in that area of the field -- perhaps locally, or via a website. Most professionals will be happy to give you some guidance when you have a specific target in mind. Another approach would be to contact some of the major universities in an area where you think you'd like to live and see what options they have available.

Good luck with your career!
