Psychology to speech and language therapy Watch
I am a psychology graduate and am now stuck with what career I wish to pursue.
I am considering speech and language therapy - does anyone know how I would go about this with a psychology degree? Do you have to do a conversion course? or a masters in speech and language therapy?
Also, what other jobs have other people gone into with a psychology degree? I really don't know what I want to do - and i'm currently stuck whilst applying for a new job.
Thanks very much!
Check with the speech therapist, as many years ago you had to do exams for each level of speech to be able to do the therapy - much like music exams but for pronunciation and diction.
To the OP, you need to take either a two-year intensive Master's in SLT or do a second BSc in speech and language therapy, normally three years.
In terms of jobs with just a psych degree, I would defo look into user experience research jobs. User experience design and research are both big and growing fields in tech. User design research jobs tends to look for people with a solid understanding quanititative and qualitative research mothods at an academic level. There are a lot of underqualified people doing those jobs atm and they're snapping up psych/anthropology/sociology grads.
Thats just my 2 cents.
