M.A. Psychology

 A master’s degree in psychology can prepare you for a range of careers helping others.
Master’s programs in psychology will give you the foundation you need to conduct or apply psychological research that ultimately improves the lives of others. If you’d like to pursue a career as a psychologist, you must start with a graduate degree in psychology before earning your doctorate.
When it comes to jobs with a master’s in psychology, positions are as diverse as the field of psychology itself—and there’s no shortage of psychology master’s programs to prepare you for these vocations.
Those with a master’s degree in psychology work both independently and within teams of diverse professionals, including lawyers, doctors, engineers, teachers, policymakers, and business executives. They work in both the public and private sectors. Some psychology professionals work primarily as researchers, while others are primarily practitioners. Many do both as scientist-practitioners. Earning a master’s degree in psychology can also prepare you for advanced studies and put you on track to earning a doctoral degree.
