What Can I Do With An Associate Degree in Psychology?

Psychologist1

A psychology degree from University of the Cumberlands can help you start your journey on a number of career paths, from psychotherapist to clinical psychologist. The need for qualified psychologists is expected to grow 14 percent by 2028. Currently, the median annual salary for these mental health professionals is $80,370.

Postsecondary Instructor2

Perhaps instead of practicing, you’re more interested in passing along what you’ve learned. With a median annual salary of $79,540, employment of postsecondary teachers is projected to grow 11 percent over the next decade.

Or you could pursue a career in other fields altogether. With the solid foundation of critical thinking and people skills a psychology degree provides, you’ll be well prepared to pursue a variety of professional careers – from front-line sales to back-office management.
