Amanda70: What are some careers in psychology other than a psychologist?
I love psychology and I am wanting to major in it in college. But I really do not want to be a psychologist. What are some other careers in the psychology field? All the careers that I have found (which is only like 4) I don’t want to do. I don’t want to do teaching. I really want to have a career actually doing something to help people or working with all the disorders, and just working with the way the mind works. Thanks for any help.
