Become a Licensed Psychologist

Find out what is required to earn a Psychologist license in your state

Whether you are interested in becoming a clinical psychologist, school psychologist, industrial/organizational psychologist, or a practicing psychologist in another field, you will need to complete established prerequisites for licensure in your state.

At a minimum, licensure will require you to complete a doctoral program in the psychology field associated with your career path in addition to a certain amount of supervised experience.

Why do Psychologists need to be licensed?

Education and experience requirements within the licensing procedure have been established for the main reason of preventing the delivery of wrong or unnecessary psychological services to those who seek assistance.

Mandatory licensing of psychologists has also allowed for the development of egalitarian psychology education programs. Psychology schools are required to provide classes not only covering established best practices, but also regarding the understanding of various cultures'.

For example, based on the collaborative effort of professionals in the psychology field, classes regarding ethical practices and consistent quality of psychological services regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and culture may be delivered.

Licensing of psychologists and the continual assessment of regulations, best psychological practices and delivery of education is a very good thing.
