Psychology Certificate Programs

What Can You Do with a Certificate in Psychology?

Psychology certificate programs are offered throughout the country for undergraduates and graduates alike. While obtaining a certificate in psychology will not qualify you to operate an independent practice, it does assist greatly on your resume for supporting positions within the psychology profession.

If you’ve already attained a GED or high school diploma and you’re enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program, then the psychology certificate is a viable educational pathway. With course work that includes behavioral research, human development, assessment and experimentation, to name a few, those attaining a certificate in a psychological field become eligible for career options in social work, career counseling, case management and outreach coordination, among other fields.

Certificates at the graduate and post-doctoral levels will require an additional level of scholarship than those at the undergraduate level. In other words, you’ll already have had to earn your bachelor’s degree¬† and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores should be available.
