While typical coursework in a psychology degree program covers a host of subjects that can help you understand the workings of the human mind, specializations can help you focus on one or more aspects of the field.

Choosing a specialization of your choice can help put you on the path to achieving your career aspirations. One of the advantages of an online program is that you are not limited to colleges that are nearby. As an online student, you can enroll in a college that offers the specialization of your choice. Listed below are just some of the options you may have.

  • Addictions: This specialization can help you understand the how people’s habits or the activities they carry out can develop into addictions and how they can be treated.
  • Applied psychology: This concentration will help you learn to use research to understand human behavior in different environments and to develop real-world solutions for use in a variety of different settings like businesses, marketing and education.
  • Child and adolescent development: You can learn how children grow and develop, how they their thoughts change as they grow up and how to apply this knowledge to work with them in a variety of settings like schools, community centers and hospitals.
  • Forensic psychology: This concentration can teach you to apply psychological concepts and theories to a variety of different criminal justice settings – from understanding the motivation behind different types of criminal behavior to issues facing the legal system.

Depending on your specialization, you may be able to obtain a job immediately after your bachelor’s degree in psychology as a training and development specialist or in human resources. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that people in these occupations can have a degree in educational or organizational psychology.

Mental health counselors help people work through difficult situations in their lives and treat their mental and emotional problems. A mental health counselor may provide treatment to individuals, couples, families or groups to help them cope with everything from job stresses and marital problems to low self-esteem, anxiety and suicidal impulses. Depending on their field of expertise, mental health counselors work with people of different ages and capabilities in a number of different settings.

Step 1: Needed prerequisites:

 

According to the BLS, individuals who want to become mental health counselors should be compassionate, patient and willing to listen to others speak about their problems. Being able to build trust with your patients is also a critical skill to have along with good interpersonal skills.

 

Step 2: Education / work experience required:

 

The BLS clubs both mental health counselors and substance abuse and behavioral disorder counselors together stating that most positions require at least a bachelor’s degree. However, the minimum education required for a mental health counselor to practice can vary on the setting they work in or the state they live in.

 

 

Certifications

Professional certifications are not typically mandatory but they can demonstrate your expertise in a particular aspect of mental health counseling. Some certifications you can qualify for after earning a bachelor’ degree in psychology include:

As you can see from the examples above, the fields you can develop your expertise in are highly varied which is why many of these professional certifications require you to have some amount of work experience. You usually need to renew certifications periodically.

Licensure

According to the BLS, licensing requirements vary from state-to-state. All counselors in private practices need to have a graduate degree and need to be licensed. However, educational and licensing requirements outside of private practice can vary depending on your chosen field of practice. It is best to check with your state board for accurate and up-to-date information.

How to fund their education is often one of the topmost questions in a student’s mind. Fortunately, there are plenty of scholarships available for eligible students of psychology that may help ease some of this burden. Scholarships, grants and loans may be offered by federal agencies, universities, private foundations and businesses. We’ve listed a few scholarships below to help you get started on your search.
