Masters in General Psychology

With a wide range of potential career paths upon completion of a Masters in General Psychology, this could be an attractive option for anyone interested in human behavior and the research that goes into it. Any psychology program will offer not only classroom coursework, but also an emphasis on research methods and clinical trials that help shape the field. After obtaining a Master's degree in this field, students could then go on to practice psychology, or go onto a PhD program that is more research-oriented. There are a number of specialized areas of study that could be encompassed in this degree, including counseling, school psychology, or clinical psychology, to begin with. Many undertake a research project in their field of interest as part of their studies. 

Obtaining an online degree in psychology or a General Psychology Master’s Program has now been made more convenient than ever, with many traditional universities and colleges offering partial online coursework at the very least. Students find that they are able to receive the same high level of instruction without having to commit to a long commute. The cost of higher education has skyrocketed in the past few decades, which unfortunately has led to some students being shut out of the masters programs of their choice. However, the prevalence of more affordable online degrees makes financing much easier for many.

The career outlook for a student with a degree in this field is quite bright, as the healthcare industry is one of the fields that are always in need of qualified new professionals. Hospitals, small clinics, schools, and the corporate world have need of generalized psychologists, and some go into market research. The potential salary range that a psychologist could earn reflects this wide range of work settings. Basic entry level salaries for psychologists can range from anywhere from $50,000 to $71,400, according to the latest statistics from the US Bureau of Labor in 2008. This then can jump exponentially with further studies or experience.
