yep, its what my dear mother calls a 'mickey mouse' subject and although i do not agree with her entirely i think that subjects like maths and sceince are far more important and psychology is only really useful if you are going to use it in your job, and even if you do you will probably go on loads of courses to learn about customer care anyway
im doing it at AS level. I originally wanted to do it as a career but now its such an oversubscribed course and it is very hard to find a job after.
I found my A-level studies in Psychology to be very useful. It is a scientific discipline which provides great insights into who we are.
Well, a friend of mine is a clinical psychologist who also teaches classes at a university. He's complained many times about how psychology has become very popular with mediocre students who are only studying it because they find it interesting, yet have no intentions of getting enough education in it to make any money at it.
An average psychologist makes $20k a year in the US (which is less than a high school drop out), so it's not something that someone who cares about money would specialize in.
Here in the UK the money is better and depending on specialisation can reach up to £60,000 a year.
