A career as a psychologist
According to the provincial WorkBC website, psychologists are in increasing demand in British Columbia. Most psychologists have a Master's or doctoral degree, with a PhD required to become a registered psychologist in BC.
Psychologists generally work directly with people in individual or group settings. Other psychologists find a career in research, and work less with the public. About 68% of psychologists work full-time and 69% of psychologists in BC are female.
