Oops.. Thats like a big jump.


Before I answer the question, just would like to check out that you are aware of the big shift in your career and hope it is supported by a valid reason.

The answer to your question is Yes, you could pursue a Masters in Cinical Psychology, but mainly from an Open University.
No regular University except IGNOU, can provide you with a full time course.

Another important aspect you need to keep in mind is that Psychology involves therapy whereby you meet the person across the table and help them find solutions to their problems as well as the use of Psychometric Assessments.
For both Therapy sessions and testing, one needs to establish a good rapport with the client and accurate instructions must be given for administering the tests.
So for both distance learning is not an accurate option.
Since internship would be avoided, just getting a degree will not help you sustain in the market.

Please note that, during work, the counselor or psychologists may not be bale to help you observe their session, because confidentiality is top priority.
So if in case, you are planning to work as a Psychologists, then preferably a full time or a distance learning that provides internship can be pursued.

Preferably opt for an M.Sc course. The only difference between MA and M.Sc is that you would be studying science related subjects in details, mainly Physiology and Neurology.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you all the very best.............
