Earning your bachelors of science in psychology online, or at a campus program can prepare you for a job where you help people. The best job opportunities will be available to those who continue their education with a master's degree in psychology or even more so with a Phd in psychology. Advanced degree holders often specialize in sub fields which give them more specific training.

Job prospects are not great for students who only have a bachelor's degree in psychology. For the best opportunities in this field, you will need an advanced degree. Employment of psychologists is expected to grow 12 percent over ten years. This growth is about average when compared to other fields of employment.
