A Master's degree in Psychology is not recognized in most states as the terminal degree and therefore cannot be used in counseling. You need to look at getting either a Psy. D. or Ph.D in the field to do any real work. Sadly the prospect of a salary much beyond the average is small with managed health care. Also, most graduate programs will require you to have some psychology hours before entering the program.Source(s): M.Ed. Education

To be a clinical Psychologist, you need a PhD
