Masters in Psychology Salaries

We have assembled a handful of career positions that have relatively large populations in this country and that align with a Masters in Psychology degree, in one or another area of specialization. There are a number of positions in industry that are described as consulting or analyst positions which match up well with psychological training but may not mention the degree as an application requirement. Most graduates from a Master in Psychology program have a feel for where these sorts of consulting opportunities lie. The field of organizational development has grown overnight into a mainstream business function that is of increasing importance to firms who are redesigning their operational infrastructure and training personnel for new roles and new functional environments. There are also unusual placements that fit well with a psychology degree such as market research and advertising. It's not easy to put an average salary to some of these roles; what is almost always true is that a master's degree provides extended management opportunities.
