Child/Family Psychology Programs

A child and family psychology degree will allow psychology students to specialize their skills in child development and counseling or family behavior and counseling. Both of these paths concentrate on human development and interaction in order to allow the student to become well equipped for counseling specific issues of their clients. A bachelor’s degree will introduce the student to basic psychology principles, while a master’s degree will provide the specialized training needed to become a licensed counselor in their state. Another career option within child psychology is to become a school counselor.
