answer from JobShadow Interview with a Psychologist
First you need to get a high school degree, then a college degree, and then you need to get a graduate degree. And you need to have a PhD level. So that could be a PhD, a PsyD(Doctor of Psychology), sometimes people work with an EDD(Doctorate of Education), but it’s a doctoral level program. And then you would have to be in a clinical study so that you can be licensed. You have to take a licensing exam in order to work as a licensed psychologist.
