Completing Your Bachelor's Degree in Psychology

All Psychology Schools Tip: There are many job possibilities for a person with a bachelor degree in psychology, but again, this will depend on the job market in the area where you want to live and work. Many types of case management, case work, crisis intervention, training, aide and assistant, resource referral, intake/admissions, advocacy and grass roots organizing positions require a bachelor degree in psychology or some related discipline. You can ask instructors who teach bachelor's level psychology courses and a career counselor; survey the job market in your intended locale; see the employment ads; and check certain education and career web sites for more job market information. Some organizations provide advancement opportunities for employees or candidates with a bachelor's and experience: This might be something to explore when you conduct your job market survey too. You may want or need to work in one of these jobs while you continue your education towards another degree, perhaps a master's and later, a doctorate in psychology. Many professionals start out with an bachelor's degree in psychology. As in many fields; pay, responsibilities, opportunities and autonomy tend to increase with higher degrees, but this isn't always the case.
