Can you qualify for a Masters in Psychology...if you don't have a bachelors in the same field, but in a related field with an arts background?

Hi Priya,

You can indeed qualify for a Masters in Psychology with a Bachelors degree in another related field.

Although you can study a Masters in General Psychology, you may also opt to specialize in a certain area of Psychology that may be better related to your career aspirations.
