The Ph.d. program in industrial psychology is one of the best-paying majors in the U.S. The average annual salary for the industrial psychology program is $120,000.
But with the average tuition of $53,000, that means graduates pay more than $500,000 in tuition.
So, why are graduates more likely to go to graduate school in other fields?
That’s what we’re going to discuss today.
Industrial Psychology is expensive.
The first time I applied for an industrial psychology degree at a U.K. university, I got the dreaded rejection letter.
I’m not going to repeat that experience here, because the UK. rejected my application so badly that I was out of the country for a year.
I had no idea what to expect from an application that was rejected.
So I emailed the university again a few weeks later and got another rejection letter that I’m still angry about today.
When I got back home, I was surprised by how much more expensive it was to get an industrial degree than a PhD. The cost of an industrial program in the United Kingdom is $140,000 compared to the $140 per year the average U.L.U. student pays for a Ph and M degree.
And while I would never advise anyone to apply to an industrial school, I also think the cost of the industrial program is actually quite reasonable.
Industrial programs are often offered at the bachelor level and the master level, which means that you’ll spend a minimum of four years on a bachelor’s degree in industrial studies.
At the master degree level, you’re expected to spend six years on your Ph. d.
So the average graduate spends about two years in the field.
Industrial fields have much higher average starting salaries.
You need to have a bachelor degree to get into industrial psychology.
And you need a bachelor to get the maximum starting salary.
The typical graduate starting salary for an industry is around $70,000 a year, which is about $60,000 more than a Ph D. I also noticed that most industrial schools don’t offer a Phd.
degree at all.
Most schools are instead offering associate degrees and master degrees.
In the United States, a Ph d. in industrial fields typically comes with a starting salary of around $50,000 and is capped at $100,000 at the master and doctoral levels.
Industrial psychology is a relatively new discipline.
Many industrial schools are starting to offer graduate programs in other industries, but it took me a while to really dig into industrial sociology because industrial psychology has a lot of overlap with other fields.
So there were lots of people working in a lot different fields who were getting their Ph.
Ds in industrial sociology.
For example, I started to see lots of graduate students doing a lot more research in environmental psychology and environmental psychology was a field that had a lot less overlap with industrial psychology than industrial sociology did.
So it took a while for me to really understand why industrial psychology was more competitive than other fields that I might have considered.
Industrial studies programs tend to be very expensive.
Industrial study programs are not cheap, but they can be worth the investment.
For an industrial psychologist, the average annual tuition is around 10 percent of the average cost of a bachelor.
And this is despite the fact that an industrial university usually offers a bachelor and Ph.
D. degree to its students.
But industrial psychology programs are also relatively expensive.
It’s worth it to be able to afford the Ph. s and Ph ds and industrial psychology masters.
