Psychology- well respected degree???Watch
I'm thinking of taking it as a degree at university and then try to become forensic psychologist (I think you take a masters to do this? Any advice on that would be great btw )
Also which are the best universities to go to????
Any help and advice would be great
Look at the university guides for the best uni's
Most people don't know what it actually entails, however, as you will see by the responses to this thread.
The receptionist at my college did his psychology undergrad and PhD at UCL
As you might gather, my opinion of psychology isn't great. If it's done at a top uni, however, that's a completely different story.
Putting his education to good use then, I see.
lol yeah he originally wanted to do medicine but did a PhD because he wanted to do "his own thing". He earns a lot now though so I don't blame him for sticking with the job S:
How is he earning a lot with his PhD, I thought his pay would be of basic teacher level if he has just completed it.
He's earning a lot as a receptionist, well over 60k
I think the more important question is whether you'll enjoy it? I took a unit of psychology in my first year and hated it. It was really dull, not what I had expected, and messed with all the 'real science' I had learnt. Stopped going to lectures less than 1/2 way through in the end.
So yeah. But every time I hear the word psychology, it is immediately replied to with "Ergh, fake science". o_O
You sure he's not bull ******** you?
The internal students pay a lot for tuition too
So does it really matter too much? Everyone has their own perspective anyway...
That's my opinion anyway, but you might say I'm biased as I am currently transferring away from psychology (not because I don't enjoy it, it's a fun subject to study, but because of the sort of things everyone has said in this thread, I know I don't have it in me to follow all the way through to being a professional psychologist)
