Associate programs in psychology can be good preparation for a bachelor's degree, or they can lead to careers in human services and administration. Graduates of the bachelor's program in psychology go on to careers in marketing, sales, education, human services, and business. At the undergraduate level, students study topics like human behavior, cognition, childhood development, and abnormal psychology. The master's degree in psychology is the minimum requirement for licensure as a therapist or counselor in most states, while the doctorate degree can lead to licensure as a psychologist. Graduate programs require an internship, where students work under experienced therapists to treat patients. Other doctorate graduates become psychology researchers.
