    First you must complete your 12th standard. Make sure to have psychology as a subject and at least 50% in the same. After that go in for a Bachelors in the same field. You may need to clear the entrance exam to secure admission for the same. After Bachelors you have the option to go in for a job or continue with Masters course. Preferably you must go for the Masters course. You can also pursue the Masters course by part time course along with a job. In the Masters course you must select the area of specialisation. On completion of the course you join a hospital to gain experience in this field. Also you have the option to go into the teaching field if interested. You will need to clear the NET exam. You can also if you desire take up a PH.d in this stream.

    It is a must to first decide on the kind of job you are aspiring for. There are various areas where you can specialise like clinical, forensic, education, health etc. You can go in for a job in hospital or teaching profession or even research based on the area selected. Make sure to choose the area that interests you. To begin with first select psychology as a subject in 12th standard. After that go in for the Bachelors degree. After that take a decision whether you would like to go in for job right away or go for a job. Even if you decide to go for a job it a must that you must pursue a Masters course later on. You can also pursue the course through distance learning or part time.

    FIRST OF ALL U HAVE TO COMPLETE PSYCHOLOGY AS A SUBJECT IN 10+2.YOU HAVE TO COMPLETE

    GRADUATION WITH PSYCHOLOGY OR YOU NEED COMPLETE HONORS FOR THE SAME.

    If you want to go into research or teach at a college or university after your doctorate, then go for a

    Ph.D. degree. If teaching or research is of less interest to you, focus your energies on a Psy.D. degree.

    Both are well recognized and accepted within the field, and you can do anything with either degree. But a

    Psy.D. often is accompanied with less stress and requirements to complete, making it somewhat easier (all things being equal).


    Aspects of the Job

    Rewarding directly working with people and their problems

    Often get an opportunity to see the results of your work

    White-collar settings for most of the profession

    9-5 work schedule, with flexibility built-in for most

    Fairly dependable work once established within a community

    Collaboration and networking with other professionals

    Large professional organization supports many needs

    Diverse field offering many different opportunities


    THANK YOU.....
