Cognitive Psychology Education in Idaho

The first step to a career in cognitive psychology is a Bachelor's degree. Idaho does not have specific undergraduate programs in this field, but many schools do offer undergraduate psychology programs. These degree programs provide basic training in psychology, including an introduction to various specialties. With an undergraduate cognitive psychology course, you can start to explore different areas of study and prepare for a graduate degree or PhD.

There are many similarities between Master's degree and PhD options in Idaho. In the early stages of your education, you complete broadly applicable cognitive psychology coursework in which you build a working knowledge of important concepts. From there, your training is highly specialized to fit your research interests. In the later stages of your training, you should work with an advisor to refine your research goals and write a thesis or PhD.

In either a graduate or doctorate program, you may enroll in courses like:

  • Perception and Cognition
  • Language and Cognition
  • Psychology of Judgment and Decision-Making
  • Cognitive Development
  • Psychological Measurement
  • Quantitative Research Design
  • Social Cognition
  • Topics in Cognitive Psychology

To earn a Master's degree, you must write a graduate thesis. As a PhD student, you write a Master's thesis approximately two years into your degree and a dissertation toward the end of your program. Both of these requirements demonstrate the importance of research in cognitive science. The advisor you work with is determined by advisor availability and compatibility of research interests. Some of the research interests you may explore include language processing, language development, judgment, decision-making, and computational modeling of behavior and brain function.

Cognitive Psychology Careers in Idaho

Once you earn a Master's degree or PhD, your work options can open up quite a bit.

You may consider becoming a clinical research coordinator whether you have a Master's degree or PhD. The average salary for a clinical research coordinator in Idaho is $93,740 per year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2016). Job openings for clinical research coordinators may jump 5% through 2022 (O*Net, 2016).

If you successfully earn a PhD, you may get into the world of academia. This is a fairly competitive specialty, so you may need to work as an adjunct professor before getting a secure position.
