Can I legally act as a counselor in California even though I have no psychology license?1Jaco2016-07-13 23:32:15
I want to start working as the equivalent of a therapist -- helping people with their typical domestic neuroses such as marriage, family, parenting, loneliness, etc. I don't have and don't have plans to get a psychology degree, nor do I want to be an MFCC or social worker. I just want to start. I have always helped people well in friendships and family life, and I intend to screen clients so that I am only working with people who are a good match. I was raised in a psychologist family, have gone to a lot of therapy, and feel like I know enough to get started. I might learn more if I attended a program, but I don't have the time, money, or energy. Can I simply charge a fee for therapy or counseling, or do I run afoul of legal difficulties? Please note this question is not intended to get your opinion of the likelihood that I will do well at the job, but rather what the legal and professional limitations are. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.[View Answers]
What's a good degree to go along with being an RN?1Darwin2016-07-13 23:29:59
I am going to be waitlisted for the RN program at my community college, I will have my AA completed and since the waitlist is six months to a year, I figured I could start working towards a minor, and eventually a major in maybe Health Services Administration or Psychology at a university. I plan on furthuring my RN degree one day to a BSN as well. Is Health services administration a good degree to get along side become a registered nurse? It seems like it could be fairly useful, and I was thinking psychology simply because I enjoy it. Or if there is another program I'm unaware of that compliments nursing... Any Advice would be appreciated![View Answers]
Speech-language pathology degree?1sharee2016-07-13 23:22:53
I am planning on attending Texas Tech next year and I have my heart set on being a speech-language pathologist. Tech has a masters program for speech pathology, but no bachelors degree in it. The website is very vague on what the prerequisites are for getting my masters in speech pathology, so I was wondering what I should major in. Also, Tech only offers linguistics as a minor, not a major. Would it be ok to major in psychology with a minor in linguistics? I am so confused, please help :) Also, any other information on speech pathology would be greatly appreciated, especially from someone who has hands-on experience.[View Answers]

Psych undergrad degree: BA or BS and Why?0christopher2012-11-06 07:05:44
The college I'm attending allows psychology majors to choose whether they wish to receive a BA or BS in psychology at graduation. Are there particular advantages to one or the other? I'm currently a sophomore and I'm not entirely sure what I want to do after graduating, but I'll probably end up applying to graduate programs in either cognitive or industrial &organizational psychology. NOT counseling psychology.[View Answers]
About business consulting jobs..MA in Industial and Organizational Psychology or MBA degree?0I R Good 2012-11-06 06:45:08
My major is Economics. After my graduation from University, I worked as an accountant in a multinational company about 2 years. But did not work out for me, I was very busy which was fine for me but it was very routine. Then I went to US and had Management and Marketing diplomas. I really like marketing. After I went back to my home country, I started to work again for a multinational company as PR Specialist. This job was exciting actually but it turned out such a piece of cake for me and there was and is no challenge. And I've been thinking to have a Master's degree and finally had a chance to start a program. Now I am hover around to concentrate in Marketing or Management Consulting. Marketing is interesting though there is not much opportunity in the city I live, but there are many small businesses need consulting. I also interested in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. SO I need your opinions, really dont know which to choose and concentrate on. I do not want any more career change in my life and want to stick one thing. Besides I want to ask which one is preferable for management consulting I/O psychology or MBA degree? Thank you [View Answers]
Why does it seem like it's harder to get into PhD in psychology than a law or pharmacy degree?0keiffon2012-11-06 06:38:01
And possibly a medical degree too! I mean, consider the top schools. PhD schools include Stanford, UPenn, Michigan and a few others, and their acceptance rate (PhD program, not Masters) is 4% or less. Law schools are about 7%, even at top ones like Harvard Law or Stanford Law. And Pharmacy PharmD programs are about 15% at top ones like Michigan (4th in nation). Some one explain this to me[View Answers]
Can't decide career path?0Happy Labor Day!!!!2012-11-06 06:03:34
I have started the process of looking into graduate programs (I'm in my third year of undergrad) and I am having trouble deciding which career path I want to start. My undergrad degree will be in psychology, with a minor in political science. I am really interested in two fields of psychology: counseling and school psychology. I really like working with children/adolescents and that's what draws me to school psychology. But I also don't want to limit myself to just this age group or to just a school setting. People have told me that if I get a masters/doctorate in counseling, I can still be a counselor within a school setting. But school psychology covers more than just counseling. Basically, if anyone in either of these fields can give me a little guidance it would be greatly appreciated!!![View Answers]
Question about graduate school specializations?0Danni2012-11-06 05:39:59
I was wondering if your graduate school concentration or major I guess you might call it necessarily has to match your undergraduate major. Right now, I am a psychology major with a minor in mathematics and I'm planning on going to graduate school, hopefully to become a professor. I would rather go to graduate school for mathematics as opposed to psychology, but I'm not sure if I can since it's only my minor. I have taken many math courses, anywhere from calculus and trigonometry to complex real analysis and applied combinatorics, so I feel that I would be well-prepared for a grad program in math, but Im almost apprehensive even to apply with the degree in psychology I will receive. Just for background information, I've considered going for a double-major in psychology and math, but i don't have the time at this point since I only picked up math during my sophomore year. I will without a doubt be able to finish the minor though. Can I still apply to a grad program in math with my current degree path? Thanks.[View Answers]
Who knows about the SMART grant?0Bhuwan gupta2012-11-06 04:02:41
I just changed my major to biology, this fall will begin my 4th year of college. in the spring, I'm enrolling in an allied health program for medical technology, which is a bachelor of science degree. my gpa is 3.44. I have already been awarded a pell grant for the 08 09 school year for $2800 dollars (about) I guess what i'm asking is, should I be eligible for the smart grant even though I *just* changed my major? It was psychology before. Also, should I talk to my financial aid officer at school and tell them that i changed majors and am now eligible? or should they figure it out on their own?[View Answers]

I failed my exam...... I feel my four years' effort gone?0lore2012-11-06 01:41:08
I am an Asian student in the United States, currently a senior in a university majoring in Psychology. I am currently have 3.9 GPA, and got A on all my major classes. Today, it's my first time to fail the test, it's biological psychology. I studied extremely hard, and slept at 2 or 3 am. However, I failed the test. I cannot accept the result. I am applying for graduate school right now, the biological psychology may destroy my GPA, and seriously influence my application. If I cannot admitted by graduate program, it's useless to get a high GPA. All my motivation for study is to go to graduate program. Because English is not my native language, I have to spend more time to study in order to catch up with American students. I gave up my hobbies, I don't party, Don't watch TV. No dating. If I cannot be admitted by graduate program, I have to return back to my home country after finishing my college, and I will be treated as a loser.......because I cannot get a good job based on a Bachelor's degree in China. I just think that if I fail to go to graduate school, the life is meaningless. I have decided that I won't go to graduation ceremony unless I can be admitted by graduate program. I am a guy, but I don't know why I cried a lot, It's so stressful in college. so lonely live by myself. If I fail, I cannot accept the result......[View Answers]
What courses do I need to become a Nurse Practitioner?0opg2012-11-06 01:24:53
I'm currently pre-med student majoring in Psychology but am considering being a Nurse Practitioner instead. I know that you need a BS in nursing to more forward to become an NP but what I'm wondering is if there are accelerated programs if you already have a Bachelor's Degree. (in my case, a BS in Psychology) and I would have already taken my MCAT so would that be looked at as an alternative to the GRE??[View Answers]

What should I pair with a bachelor degree in Psychology?0Toya2012-11-06 00:32:20
I need to settle on another degree to pair with psychology. I don't know if I want to do biology because I dread taking organic chemistry and I don't want to work in a lab on a day-to-day basis. I was thinking information technology specializing in programming but I don't know if I like to type thousands of line of codes. I guess I need this other degree to be the backup plan in case psychology do not get me a job. Any ideas? ps. I am planning on going to graduate school either way.[View Answers]
Military Career Options: PhD student interested in becoming an Officer (previously USAF enlisted)?0Chubby2012-11-06 00:21:32
I have been considering joining the military(/Air Force) again after my graduate work is finished. I am in a PhD program for Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology and I will soon defend my Master's Degree. Briefly, I-O psychologists expertise include: Selection, retention, attitude assessment, and other workplace issues (such as, training, job analysis, stress, leadership, personality, etc). In other words, issues that are becoming increasingly important to the military. I have been trying to find information on whether this advanced degree would 'fast-track' my career (such as, starting higher than O-1). I am particularly interested in what implications my degree would have for career advancement. I know that certain advanced degrees can lead to a Direct Commission, but not sure if mine is applicable. In addition, my understanding is that in order to advance very far as a USAF officer, you (almost) need to have been in the Academy and/or pilot (I'm 31 and too old now). Finally, my last year was in S. Korea on a remote tour. If I would have stayed in, I would have been able to have some choice for my home-base. Could this still be a possibility?[View Answers]
Is Nursing or Engineering better for gaining entry into HR management?0kylah2012-11-05 23:51:40
I finished the courses for an M.S. in organizational psychology and human resources almost a year ago. I've been looking for a job in HR, training, program management and evaluation, corporate research, consulting, etc. ever since. We all know it's rough out there. I've been thinking about working in a high demand field for a couple of years and then moving into management, HR management, or field specific consulting. Pros of Nursing: High demand, high projected demand Much more accessible for women than Engineering More accessible for people of color than Engineering Will take less than two years to receive degree as opposed to at least three years for Engineering training Pros of Engineering Field: Higher pay than Nursing High demand for certain occupations More job autonomy than Nursing Which of these fields offers the best opportunity for quick advancement to the managerial level? I love to learn, don't find one more interesting than the other, and am NOT concerned about the difficulty of either program. After experiencing graduate school I know what it's like to devote 60 hours a week to studying, classwork, research and an internship.[View Answers]
