In deciding which Georgia psychology school is best for you, you will want to consider the options of degree program lengths and enrollment status. Some programs will allow you to enroll part time versus full time, but funding for part time students is more limited than for full time students. Online psychology programs in Georgia are also offered, relieving some of the pressure of full time enrollment by allowing you to complete courses at your own pace and on your own time.

You will also want to decide if you are going to pursue your Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD or PsyD degree, as each can lead to a variety of different careers and financial compensation levels. No matter which degree level you pursue, in your psychology degree program you will learn about social and culture foundations, human growth and development, psychopathology, career and lifestyle development, group counseling, substance abuse and alcohol abuse and helping relationships theory, to name a few. Some psychology professionals begin their career by entering the workforce with their Bachelor’s degree to gain experience before continuing their education.

Psychology Resources in Georgia


If you are looking for financial aid to help support you in obtaining your Georgia psychology degree, there are several resources that can help including the Georgia HOPE Scholarship which is funded by the Georgia Student Finance Commission, the Accel Program through the Georgia Department of Education and Georgia’s Tuition Equalization Grant Program that offers tuition assistance to students seeking full time enrollment at a private Georgia college or university.

Many students are seeking to become a psychologist with their degree, which will require at least a Master’s degree in psychology to obtain your counselor license (LPC). On top of your education to obtain your LPC, you will also be required to practice under the supervision of a certified licensed therapist for one year if you have your Doctoral degree and for up to four years if you have your Master’s degree. To find a list of certified supervisors, you can visit the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia (LPCA) for requirements. The LPCA is also a helpful tool for job seeking, networking, finding the latest news in psychology and certifications available.

Other associations in the state that are helpful for staying up to date in the field of Psychology are the Georgia Psychological Association and the Georgia Psychological Society. A resource available for psychiatrists in the state is the Georgia Psychiatric Physicians Association (GPPA), but a doctoral level of education is required for membership and access to information.
