Psychology Education In Indiana

In Indiana, you must hold a doctorate degree in psychology or in a field that is very closely related, such as counseling psychology or educational psychology, in order to become licensed to practice as a psychologist. The degree you obtain must be from an educational establishment that is accredited or approved. You have two main options to choose from, namely the Psy.D. or the Ph.D., and you must choose carefully between those two as this choice will determine the future of your career. Indeed, it is recommended to speak to a career adviser if you are unsure about which way to go.

Educational Requirements to Become a Licensed Psychologist in Indiana

Either a Ph.D. or a Psy.D. is a valid degree to become a licensed psychologist in Indiana. To obtain this, you will generally have to start with a bachelor's degree, which takes four years to complete. After this, most people would choose to complete a two-year master's degree program, followed by a further two to four years for the Ph.D. or Psy.D. Some schools do also accept bachelor's degree holders into their doctorate programs, but it will then generally take an additional two years to complete it. It is becoming increasingly rare for programs in Indiana to offer the bachelor's to doctorate option, however, and candidates with a master's degree have a much greater chance of being accepted.

It is very important that you have made the right choice when it came to deciding between the Ph.D. and Psy.D. This is because the focus of the degrees is very different. The licensure requirements between the two do not differ, but rather, the things that you will be able to do will be different. The Ph.D. is a research-based degree. This means that, in order to graduate, you will have to complete a thesis based on original research. This research must contribute to the psychology field. With the Psy.D., by contrast, the focus is more on clinical applications. As a result, although you do have to complete a thesis, it does not have to be a piece of original research. Because of the thesis requirement, completing a Ph.D. tends to take significantly longer. As a result, grants and funding opportunities are also of higher value.

Supervised Professional Experience for Psychologists in Indiana

To complete a Ph.D. or Psy.D., you will usually have to undergo an internship of at least 1,500 hours. In most cases, this is unpaid work. You can complete this at any point during or after your degree, although no more than two years can have passed since graduation. After this, you will need to take part in a further 1,600 hours of supervised professional experience, which is usually paid. These 1,600 must be completed after graduation, and your supervisor must be a licensed and approved psychologist. You have one year to complete these requirements.

Indiana Psychologist Licensure Examinations

Once you have completed your doctorate and you have met the internship and supervised professional experience requirements, you can apply to be licensed through the Indiana State Psychology Board. Once they have reviewed your application and approved it, you will be able to take the national exam for psychologists, which is the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP). The test is administered by the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) and consists of 255 multiple choice questions. 175 of these questions are marked for a pass rate. It costs $600 to take part in this exam, although this cost is subject to change.

The Career of a Psychologist in Indiana

Completing your doctorate degree and meeting all the necessary requirements will prepare you for a very interesting career. It is also here that you will see the next big difference between the Psy.D. and the Ph.D. degrees. With a Ph.D., you will more than likely get to work in research or education. With a Psy.D., by contrast, you are likely to get to work directly with patients in a clinical setting. Although you might also engage in some research, the focus of your job will be far more on direct patient contact.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for a psychologists in Indiana are as follows:

• Clinical, counseling and school psychologists, of whom there were 1,340, earned an average annual salary of $69,990.
• All other psychologists, of whom there were 130, earned an average annual salary of $85,220.

However, there are great variations in this, depending on the level of experience and education. Additionally, the type of employer you work for is another factor that influences average annual salaries.
