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 someone has an academic bent of mind and is genuinely interested in the working of human mind, a career in psychology may be just the right for her or him. Psychology is usually taught at the 10+2 or equivalent level with other social sciences. Most universities offer the subject as a bachelors honor programme. After graduation one can go for an MA or MSc in psychology. Regular post graduate courses in psychology are offered only to students who have graduated with psychology. Specializations in the subject can be pursued at the post graduate or doctoral level-MPhil or PhD, after post graduation. At the master's and doctoral level , the subject becomes increasingly specialized. What one takes up as his or her specialization decides which career path one can follow

. E.g to be clinical psychologist one needs to have specialization in clinical psychology at post graduate level. Clinical psychologists assess and treat people with psychological problems. They may act as therapists for people who are experiencing normal psychological crises or for individual suffering from severe psychological disorders. Some clinical psychologists are generalists who work with a wide variety of populations , while others work with specific groups such as children, the elderly or people with specific disorders. People who are interested to work with industries must take up industrial psychology as her specialization at post graduate level. Likewise sports psychologists should have an extensive educational background and training in sports, motivation management , performance and athletics. If someone is keen to deal with school children , counsel them with an aim to assist them in dealing with their academic, career or behavioral concern must take up counselling psychology as her specialization at post graduate level
