To become a psychologist, such as a clinical, counseling, school, or developmental psychologist, you’ll need to advance your education to the master’s or doctoral level.
Specific degree requirements can vary by specialty, licensing laws in your state, and certification requirements.
Earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology can be a good steppingstone towards the longer educational pathway to becoming a licensed psychologist.
