    Educational Requirements: A Ph.D, Psy.D. or Ed.D. degree is required to become a counseling psychologist.

    Counseling psychologists perform many of the same tasks as clinical psychologists such as offering psychotherapy and mental health treatment, but they typically work with clients suffering from less severe forms of mental illness. While mental health is one of the largest areas within counseling psychology, some people in this field opt to conduct research, teach university courses, or provide vocational counseling.

    Forensic psychologists deal with psychological issues related to the law. Some of the duties that a professional in this field might perform include developing psychological profiles of criminals, dealing with child custody issues, investigating child abuse, providing expert testimony, preparing witnesses to testify in court, and offering training to law enforcement.

    8. School Psychologist

    Educational Requirements: Most states require the completion of a 60-credit school psychology specialist program, which leads to a master's or Ed.S. degree. Approximately 32 percent of school psychologists hold a Ph.D., Psy.D. or Ed.D. degree.

    School psychologists work within the educational system to diagnose and treat behavior and learning problems in children. They often work in collaboration with other professionals including teachers and doctors as well as parents to help kids overcome social, emotional, behavioral, and academic problems. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook published by the U.S. Department of Labor, jobs in this field are expected to grow by approximately 11 percent over the next decade.
