Value of a Master's Degree in Psychology

People with master's degrees in psychology are employed in a variety of positions including those that involve survey research, probation and parole casework, law enforcement, technical writing, and training and development.  They often qualify for executive and managerial positions in administration, marketing, public relations, and personnel/human resources.  They frequently teach psychology at the community college level and serve as adjunct instructors of psychology at some colleges and universities. 

Many of these individuals handle data collection and analysis for research projects conducted in government, universities, and private industry.  Some are employed as psychology technicians at VA or university medical centers where they administer and score psychological and neuropsychological tests, collect research data, and provide clinical and vocational services under supervision. 

Finally, a significant proportion of master's degree graduates go on to earn doctorates in clinical psychology, counseling psychology, or experimental psychology.
