Psychology Education in Maryland

The first step to pursuing a career in general psychology is to earn your degree. Undergraduate work in psychology typically involves being introduced to the general theories of psychology, from Freud to Pavlov. Students also learn basic research skills and may conduct simple research using college student peers as research participants. An undergraduate degree in psychology may also involve taking non-related courses, such as sociology, math, science and philosophy in order to obtain a well-rounded education according to the American Psychological Association.

Pursuing a Master’s degree in Psychology in Maryland involves studying theories and methodologies more in-depth. In graduate psych programs, many students either choose a specialty or continue to study general psychology. A degree in general psychology involves studying all of the theories and methodologies rather than focusing on just one area such as child psychology, addiction psychology or school counseling. At this stage, students may be required to complete an internship in order to gain clinical experience. They may also need to complete a master’s thesis in order to demonstrate knowledge obtained.

Doctoral level psychology students begin to focus on developing advanced research techniques and clinical practices. Classroom work will involve advanced theory, diagnostic and counseling techniques. Students may also be asked to teach undergraduate and master’s-level courses.

Opportunities may arise for the psychology student to participate in research for both the final dissertation and research with department faculty with the goal of having the results published in a professional journal. If you are hoping to pursue licensure as a general psychologist, you may also need to complete supervised internships and practicum as part of the doctoral degree process.

License Requirements for Psychology Graduates in Maryland

The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is the state governing body for licensure as a general psychologist in the state of Maryland. Those hoping to pursue licensure may be required to complete a doctoral program and earn rather a Ph.D. or a Psy.D.

A minimum of 3,250 hours of professional clinical experience must be obtained, with at least 75 percent of that experience supervised by a licensed psychologist. The Board of Health also currently requires three letters of reference, official transcripts sent by any schools attended, a clean criminal background check and successful completion of an exam before a license to practice as a general psychologist can be earned.
