There's an overabundance of psychology degrees just like there's an overabundance of business administration degrees, but the undergraduate degree is not useless. It's interesting how few people know that business administration has a very high underemployment rate because hundreds of thousands of people get this degree every year, and it's the liberal arts degree of the business world. 1. In some states, one only needs an associate's or bachelor's degree to become a substance abuse counselor. I worked as a chemical dependency counselor with a bachelor's degree. 2. Parole and probation officer positions usually require a bachelor's degree, and they prefer degrees in psychology, CJ, social work, sociology, etc. Although, they can be so desperate for people at times that they'll accept any degree. 3. CPS and APS positions usually require a degree, and they prefer the same degrees as probation and parole departments. 4. There are non-licensed counseling positions (I had one) that require a human services-related degree. 5. There are other social services positions that look for psychology degrees. The federal government has certain positions that require a bachelor's degree in a behavioral science, and psychology is a behavioral science. Almost all the positions I obtained with my BA in Social Science were because I had a large number of psychology credits. My coworkers often had undergraduate degrees in psychology, criminal justice, social work, sociology, and counseling. Where people go wrong is that they believe there's an abundance of psychology research assistant positions or that they'll have a good chance of becoming a criminal profiler. Criminal justice has the same issue. People think they need the degree to become a city cop when they usually don't, they think it will give them a good chance of getting hired by the FBI when it won't, and they think the degree qualifies them to become CSI right after graduation.
