How many years of school do you need for a psychology degree?

I am thinking about going back to school.


Answer by  ewam (403)

A good psychologist at least needs eight years of schooling to get their degree. But I've heard of multiple people going to school for four more years to perfect their skills.

A University bachelor of arts degree is typically 3-4 years, a Master's Degree another 2 years, and a PhD another 3-5 years. Some schools have combined programs that you skip the Master's degree and go straight to PhD, taking 5-6 years. Clinical psychology takes longer than other disciplines within psychology

To get a bachelor of arts in psychology you will need either your high school diploma, or a passing GRE score, and typically four years of college at a university. Depending on the number of units you take, you may take longer or shorter to achieve your degree. You must also meet the requirements of the major.
