The growing understanding of psychology and its importance has brought with itself a plethora of career opportunities. It holds the solution to a thousand mental, social and psychological problems human beings find themselves battling with. Psychology is an extremely complex science working on pure logic and reasoning combined with apt sensitivity. If you have an academic bent of mind and are genuinely interested in the working of human mind, a career in psychology may be just the thing for you.

Psychology is usually taught at the 10+2 or equivalent level with other social sciences. Most universities offer the subject as a Bachelors Honors programme. After graduation you can go for an M.A. or M.Sc in Psychology, Social work or Counseling. Post graduate courses in psychology are offered only to students who have graduated with psychology. Specialisations in the subject can be pursued at the post graduate level or at the doctoral level- M.Phil or Ph.D, after post graduation. At the master's and doctoral level, the subject becomes increasingly specialized. What you take up as your specialization decides which career path you can follow. For example, sports psychologists should be have an extensive educational background and training in sports, motivation management, performance and athletics.
