Masters in Psychology Programs in Virginia
(found programs from 20 schools)


To practice psychology in Virginia, you must be licensed by the state, which requires at least a master's in psychology degree. With this degree and a license from the Virginia Board of Education, you can work as a school psychologist. To work outside the school system, though, you must not only earn a doctorate, but you must also participate in internship hours and continuing education.

To begin the process of working as a Virginia psychologist, you will need to enroll in a master's in psychology program. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), those with master's degrees in psychology in Virginia were in demand in 2012. The state had 2,440 people working as Clinical, Counseling or School Psychologists.

Another 350+ were working in other various mental health roles including Industrial and Organizational Psychology. Virginia residents working in clinical, counseling, and school psychologists made an annual mean wage of almost $66,650 in 2012 according to the BLS.

At the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, students can earn a master's in psychology in clinical psychology or general psychology. The Catholic graduate school offers a program that allows students to easily transfer into a doctoral program and an advanced master's program with a rigorous academic education.

At James Madison University, students can earn a master's in psychology in school counseling, which will prepare them to become counselors in public schools.

Finally, Liberty University, a Christian college, offers a master's in psychology program in marriage and family therapy and professional counseling. Some programs can be completed online or in a hybrid format, but not all states accept online degrees for licensure, so the program is also offered in an on-campus format.
