So you're considering graduate school in psychology?

You have a lot to think about.  Yes, it will be several more years.  Depending on what you are interested in, you'll likely need a doctoral degree.  No, we do not offer such training here.  We've been doing a talk here regularly concerning this -- see our notes.

For starters, check out Graduate Schools and Careers in Psychology by the nice folks at Rider University.

The Pursuing Psychology Graduate School Information Page from the University of Northern Iowa.

How to Apply to Graduate School  by Linda J. Hayes & Steve C. Hayes REPRINTED FROM THE APS OBSERVER, SEPTEMBER 1989

Directory for School Psychology.

Also see info on the GRE - if you don't know what it is and you're considering applying to a grad program in psychology, I suggest you check it out!  Go to
