Social Psychologist

I selected social psychologist because I enjoy communicating with others.

Social psychologists help people who struggle with being, well, social. They also try to find answers to real world problems. This can include helping business men, who are unsure how to talk to their clients. Also, some social psychologists as professors at colleges.

It can take up to 6 years to receive a masters degree in this profession, while it can take 8 years or longer to recieve a doctorate degree.

At the minimum, a social psychologist will make around $76,090, and that number can increase to up to $116,500 with proper education and experience.

Most social psychologists work at universities as professors, but some work with major corporations or businesses.

Social psychologists deal with applied research because they deal with practical, everyday problems.
