Psychologist: Career Information


Job Description:

Psychology is the study of human thought, emotion and behavior. Someone who is trained in this discipline is called a psychologist and he or she has a variety of options from which to choose when deciding on an area of specialization. The most popular areas are clinical, counseling and school psychology. Although trained differently, a clinical or counseling psychologist both assess individuals in order to diagnose and subsequently treat their mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. A school psychologist focuses on education-related issues. Another popular area is industrial and organizational psychology. Someone who works in this area applies psychological principles to workplace problems.

Employment Facts:

Psychologists held about 174,000 jobs in 2010. There were 154,000 clinical, counseling and school psychologists, 2,000 industrial-organizational psychologists and 18,000 who were employed in other specializations.

Many psychologists worked in schools or in health care settings such as hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation facilities and mental health centers. Others worked in universities. About a third of all psychologists were self-employed.

Since clinical psychologists must be available when their clients can see them, many work in the evenings and on weekends. Those who have private practices can work part-time if they wish. School psychologists generally work during school hours. Industrial-organizational psychologists work during regular business hours.


In 2011, salaried clinical, counseling and school psychologists in the US earned a median annual salary of $67,880 ($32.64 per hour). Salaried industrial-organizational psychologists earned a median annual salary of $94,720 ($45.54 hourly).
