Dear Career aspirant

Welcome to CareerGuide.com.
We guide you to a perfect career.

Being a clinical psychologist and a professional in that field, I think I shall guide you properly. For MA clinical psychology, the desired qualification naturally is BA Psychology or any other degree with atlease three ppers related to psychology. Because clinical psychology is considered to be good psychology qualification and is related to human health. No health professionl person is llowed to play with a persons helth. Therefore, it has been decidded to make a basic knowledge in psychology compulsory for MA clinical psychology.

I am afraid there ar no approved MA clinical psychology course in India without the above crieterias. But you can always choose other disciplines based in psychology such as counseling psychology, educational psychology, organizational psychology, child psychology, geriatric psychology, forensic psychology etc. For a post graduate degree in the above brnches a degree from recognized university is enough.

I shall ask you another question. Why do you want to divert to psychology from BMM? Why don't you stick to the BMM discipline? Changing disciplines often shows your indecision and such an indecive attitude may hamper your future career prospective.

Do not worry that I wrote the above paragraph. It is my concern even now. But if psychology is your passion, and if you have decided to pursue that passion, and that you shall not change this decision again, then you should follow this goal path. Defini9tely you shall be a winner.

Be passionate to your career. Gain knowledge.
Hope this answers your query.
God bless you.
