Hello Swati,

Psychology is a very vast field and there are various sub fields also. The basic ones are Clinical Psychology, Organizational Behavior, Child Psychology, Counseling Psychology, Rehabilitation Psychology, Research Methodology etc....



Each one has their own area of work like the Clinical Psychologist works in a hospital setting, Organizational Behaviorist works in organizations in HR departments Counseling Psychologist works as a counselor, Rehabilitation Psychologist works in Rehabilitation Center, Child Psychologists work in schools or child care centers etc..... it is your choice as to what type of work setting you want to work in and decide accordingly.

Best Wishes!
