- click here for more information on this paper
I have a bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters and Doctoral degree in Clinical Forensic Psychology
- How long have you worked in this particular field?
I have been working as a psychologist for a little over four years now
- What other professions have you had?
No career jobs. Mainly customer service and child care.
- What do you feel drove you to this profession?
I actually started as a biology major. I wanted to be a pediatrician. However, during my first year of college, I was placed in an Abnormal Psychology course which was paired with Intro to Psychology. I realized I understood psychology more and found passion in helping people through difficult periods in their lives. I took a few more psychology courses to see if I truly was interested in it, and by the end of my freshman year, I switched my major.
- What where the requirements educationally to gain this profession?
To be a psychologist, you must have a graduate degree and a doctoral degree. My particular doctoral program did not require you to have a Master’s Degree. The Master’s Degree was awarded after I completed the first phase of my dissertation. However, most people do get their Master’s degree before starting a doctoral degree. (it’s just 2 extra years of school)
