Using your Psychology to become a college Professor involved in teaching and research
For many students, earning a Psychology degree and then receiving a Doctorate is the path to being a Professor on a college campus. This job involves both teaching and research at a medium-sized or large university that awards both undergraduate and graduate degrees. In this setting, Professors spend a large portion of their time conducting research or experiments, and often apply for grants from the government or private foundations in order to fund their research. A college Professor may teach both undergraduates and graduate students. The former may be taught in relatively large classes.
Keep in mind that faculty who conduct research do so in various areas of Psychology. For a full listing of all areas go to the following American Psychological Association Site:
