[edit] Education

To become a psychologist, a person must first get a degree at university. Then the person goes to graduate school. A Master's degree takes a shorter time and the graduate can use the initials M.S. (Master of Science) after his name. A Doctorate degree takes a longer time and the graduate can use the initials Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy) after his name. The American Psychological Association says that a person needs a Ph.D. to call himself a psychologist.
