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.

Hi, definitely the roles have gone into advance level and will proceed further to other levels for which self up-gradation is required or else one will just remain with basic skills easily adaptable by anyone.

There are new therapies, new models, new techniques to deal with the various kind of situations and just a basic knowledge cannot do the wonders. Need is to update yourself with smart practice as well.

Hope this helps you!

Dear Sahil,

The question which you have asked is also the answer to your question. Let me put it this way, it is due to the increase in the awareness about the importance of the psychologist that you are eager to know the scope.

Over the past decade the stress levels among the young and old have seen manifold increment. One of the major reason has been tough global competition and also changing social structure. The virtual world has taken over the real world, in the fast paced life everyone is looking for a quick solution. The new generation is bold and is ready to talk about their personal affairs with an expert and sort their life. The Taboo attached with talking about psychological disorders is been removed thanks to our present day celebrities like Deepika Padukone. When in despair people have started turning  to psychologist to restore peace in their life.

 

The future belongs to Psychologists as they have started making their presence felt in the new stressed and self-centric society. The schools, hospitals and corporates are already hiring them.
