Types of Psychologists

Psychologists have several areas to specialize in ranging from clinically diagnosing various mental health, emotional or behavioral disorders to working in non-clinical practice environments such as research and even business. In most cases psychologist sub-specialties will require a doctoral degree as the terminal degree and specific certifications, yet there are a few states and sub-specializations that allow for a master's degree in psychology to be the terminus.

Psychologists with a master's degree may be found working mental health, the education system (schools), in business, in government positions, academia and returning to school for their doctoral degree.

Doctoral level psychologists may be found working in academia, mental health, private practice, business, government as well as heading back to school for their post doc.
