What do Psychologists do? Psychologists study the human mind and human behavior. A bachelor's degree in psychology qualifies a person to assist psychologists and other professionals in community mental health centers, vocational rehabilitation offices, and correctional programs. Employment of psychologists is expected to grow faster than average for all occupations through 2015, because of increased demand for psychological services in schools, hospitals, social service agencies, mental health centers, substance abuse treatment clinics, consulting firms, and private companies.

Education and Training: An associate degree in psychology is an undergraduate-level degree that usually takes two years to complete. The associate degree option is often offered at 2-year colleges and many students then transfer to a state university to complete a bachelor's degree. Most entry-level psychology professions require a bachelor's degree at the very minimum. An associate degree is often used as a stepping stone toward earning a bachelor's and is a great way to gain a solid background in psychology before moving on to more advanced studies.
