Bulan77 Posted November 20, 2021 Share Posted November 20, 2021 (edited) HI all, I have a couple questions: 1) If you specialize in research, what type of work are you doing? Did you need a PhD, or have you considered getting one, in order to improve your career options? 2) Also, what's your opinion on career options for psychology researchers in academia vs. industry or government, etc.? My background: I have an MSW degree, an honours BA in social and community psychology with an emphasis on research, and I'm seriously considering a PhD in applied social psychology. I enjoy research, as well as the topic of human behaviour. I completed an undergrad thesis and masters thesis, and I managed my thesis advisor's research lab for a year, so I feel somewhat confident as a researcher, but I'm having trouble finding work in my field. So I'm wondering how much a PhD would open up my career options. Edited November 20, 2021 by Bulan77 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
