Careers in Neuroscience and Psychology


Stumped on which career path to take as a Neuroscience or Psychology major? Well, you're in luck! This meeting we discussed the various fields within Neuroscience and Psychology and what educational requirements are needed for these fields.

We began talking about the former, separating it into varying subfields. The occupations within these varying subfields are the following: neurologist, neuroscientists, forensic nurse, and research scientists. We also clarified differences between a neurologist and neuroscientist because they aren't the same occupation.

Moving towards Psychology, we also talked about different subfields within Psychology. The occupations within these varying subfields includes: clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, school psychologist, and social psychologist. We also clarified the difference between a clinical psychologist and a psychiatrist. In addition to that, we also explained the difference between obtaining a Ph. D and a Psy. D.

Concluding our meeting, we talked specifically about Rutgers, such as the resources available and the research opportunities available.
