Hi Career Guide,
In terms of career prospects in Psychology, a student has lots of scope depending on where exactly his or her interest lies in. A psychologists can work in corporates to hospitals to schools to various other setups depending on their field of specialization.
Please note, to pursue Psychology, a students needs to be a graduate in Psychology followed by a masters degree in any specialization as per their choice. Though there are a lot of diploma and short term courses in Psychology as well as correspondence courses, for graduates in any stream, but for them to function as a psychologists is not that easy because of lack of knowledge in the field of therapies and testing.
Please note, majorly a psychologists is seen in 2 roles: 1. Therapies, which we term as counseling. 2. testing, conducting various test for specific evaluation.
In terms of specialization, A student can choose from:
Please note that since counseling is a small team, so in an organization you would find all the specialisations together. And someone who is open to all sorts of learning, then start learning from each other. So they can be well equipped with the others field of expertise. But can only not certify the client.
Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck...........
