Psychology Education in Missouri

A master’s degree in psychology is more focused on psychology and often requires choosing a focus for your degree. For instance, you may opt to choose a degree in clinical psychology rather than general psychology. The coursework will often include conducting your own research or writing a thesis if you plan on earning a doctorate in psychology. It is important to plan ahead when you are earning your masters in psychology since some universities in Missouri do not require a research project or thesis, but instead offer a comprehensive test at the end of the program to complete the master’s degree.

Most students who want a career in psychology opt to earn their doctorate degree. At the doctorate level, you will focus on applying what you have learned as a student to practical settings and situations. For instance, students earning a counseling psychology degree will often work in a setting that allows one on one work with clients. Some universities in Missouri provide you with a mentor through the college to assist you in earning your doctorate degree in psychology.

Graduates in the state of Missouri will need to contact the Missouri Division of Professional Registration. You will need to request a packet from the division and complete all the required documentation and pay all fees for your licensing before you are eligible to take the written and oral exams provided by the licensing board. Written exams are given on a monthly basis, while oral exams are provided every three months. You will need to have applied and been reviewed by the board before your exams are available and you may be able to take the exams on the same day if you schedule you appointment for a Friday.
