"college graduates make alot more money than university psychology graduates"

wtf are you smoking? college grads are stupid. if you don´t go into anything hands on at college then you are a university reject. you only go to college for something hands on.if it is for accounting or science. good luck competing for a job with university students ....lol...

^ ignorance is bliss.

Psychology, like any other science, is not about the money. Science is about research and the discovery of knowledge. You´d be hard pressed to find a mathematician, physicist, biologist, or any other scientist who makes six figures unless you look at professors. In addition, these types of jobs require a PhD if you are to be taken seriously. This is the difference between University and Community College. College is concerned with training you to do a simple job and that´s it.

Go to University to acquire knowledge,

and go to College to receive specific job training.

congrats, you blissful moron. Youve told us all what we already know.


Students doing only undergrad studies dont further a science, and most of them will never go to the PHD level. Dont try to say an undergrad in science is doing anything exciting or special because they are not.

Its called doing what you enjoy. What is wrong with doing an undergrad in Science or English or Political Science if you enjoy it? True, you may end up doing business, or teaching, but at the same time, if your interest is genuine, you can pursue a PhD and conduct cutting edge research. Undergrad in anything is useless. Business is pretty useless too. A science or philosophy student can pursue a MBA in the same way a business student can and walk out more well rounded and attractive to employeers.

Or, you can forget all that and be another office clone like 98% of business students (thinking their going to be the next Donald Trump), or an engineer who realizes that engineers actually dont make a lot of money and switches to management.

First of all... An undergrad in business is an awesome way to make money if you go the rout of finance or accounting.. getting your CA or CFA opens doors.(i will admit marketing and managment degrees are iffy)

Oh and engineers do make alot of money within engineering, between 50K-120K is damn good money. Plus whats wrong with branching off into managment?, some guys get sick of doing engineering after 20 or 30 years, and other guys are willing to make sacrifices for more money. Engineering degrees gives you the opertunity to do that.


Science degrees are as good as any degree within the realms of the university, but many unknowing students realise that life isnt so good when they try top go into industry.... Doing what you love isnt always in your best interest, for example: I love to paint, should i try to make a living out of painting? hells no, id like to have the money to raise a family some day and being an artist wont cut it.

Keep in mind these figures are U.S., not Canadian.

Figures are in US dollars:

Applied Psychology - Industrial/Organizational

This section presents the salaries of those respondents whose positions may be called applied psychology (e.g., personnel selection, assessment, systems or equipment design, organizational consultation, analysis or training) and whose current major field is industrial/organizational psychology. Salaries for the 176 doctoral-level respondents are described in Figure 10 and Table 10.

Of the doctoral-level respondents in this category, the largest proportions were employed in consulting firms (38%) followed by business and industry settings (33%). Six percent were self-employed, 5% were employed in a government agency, and 4% worked as independent consultants.

The overall median 11-12-month salary for doctoral-level industrial/organizational psychologists in 2003 was $105,000, based on 169 valid responses. The standard deviation ($76,630) is large for this group, indicating substantial variation around the mean of $130,059. Salaries of doctoral-level industrial/organizational psychologists are also examined by degree, age, gender, and salary change across years in the salary report by the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychologists (SIOP) entitled, 2003 Income and Employment Survey Results For The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (Medsker, Katkowski, and Furr, 2005).
