Katherine’s Answer

I would recommend getting to know books and any other media by people like Dave Stoop, Les and Leslie Parrott, Ross Campbell, Gary Chapman, John Townsend, Henry Cloud, John Gray, John Delony; and look into learning something about various 12-step programs and similar concepts and programs. All of this will just put you inside the conversation about a big part of the world of what psychological knowledge is helpful for, whatever thoughts you have as you learn about it.

Judith-Ann’s Answer

Before you find your classes for psychology, you might consider health education classes. Believe it or not, history can be an interesting study of human nature. In historical figures, I find it interesting to know about their upbringing, about their social interactions, about their illnesses, about any traumatic event. Ask yourself what were they thinking and feeling that led them to make the decisions that led to thier finding a place in history. All of these things help to shape who a person becomes. Or perhaps you could take a science class to learn how the brain operates. Or perhaps you might enjoy studying biographies of some of the famous psychiatrists or psychologists to see what led them to their careers- Freud, or Jung, for instance. I like how you are thinking outside the box. This will help you be a better person and a better clinician, should you decide to go that way. Enjoy your journey and may you find just the right path for you.

Deborah’s Answer

I would suggest you do some internship at the hospital or clinic close to you where you have the opportunity to have such discussions with a professional / psychologist on the job.

You can also use online learning platforms such as Udemy, Coursera, etc to do some courses on psychology.
Starting salary for a psychologist may vary but I don't have so many insights on it.

Branwen’s Answer

Hi Mayte,
If you're set on pursuing a degree in Psychology, I would suggest going to your local community college and taking classes there since the coursework at the community college might be able to transfer to the 4 years and I say might because some courses don't have an exact transfer course number similar to that at the 4 years so I would suggest speaking to an academic counselor at the community college to gain further information about that.

If you don't know if you want to major in Psychology, I would suggest shadowing or gaining input from a Psychologist to see and hear from the Psychologist yourself to gain better insight.
