A clinical psychologist will evaluate, diagnose, and treat mental illnesses.
A doctorate in psychology is usually required to do this work. There are opportunities to do similar work with a master's degree, but there will be more opportunities for those who have a doctorate. A doctorate may take an additional four-five years to earn after first earning a four-year bachelor’s degree, depending on the specific program. Generally, someone must obtain a doctorate to be a "psychologist".
The job outlook for this position looks good over the next 10 years, keeping in mind that geographical differences may exist. Opportunities may be best for psychologists who provide therapy.
