Psychology has a wide breadth of application and specializations. The master’s degree with a specialization in general psychology is designed to provide you with a broad scope and higher understanding of psychology, including behavioral approaches, neuropsychology, psychopathology, and cognitive psychology. This is a good option for those interested in research and applying this knowledge within another or more generalized profession where understanding mental processes and human behavior could further improve effectiveness in the field.*
*Kaplan University cannot guarantee employment or career advancement. Additional training or certification may be required. The professional practice of psychology is regulated by each state, and the degree requirements in this program do not prepare graduates for state licensure. It is important to note that, while earning a master’s degree in psychology may qualify you to work in the helping professions, a doctorate degree is required to become a psychologist and a medical degree is required to become a psychiatrist. Licensure exams may also be required.
