Published on

A bachelor’s degree in psychology is a great stepping stone for applying for a psychology graduate program. Only those with a master’s or Doctorate degree can practice as counselors or psychologists in a professional capacity. If, however, entering a psychology graduate program isn’t your passion, you can still go on to apply for graduate programs in other areas as a psychology major. Or, you can stick to a more traditional path and earn an advanced psychology degree.
