Did you know that the state of Pennsylvania isn’t a state at all? Officially, it’s a “Commonwealth”, if you were to ask someone from Pennsylvania (although most American’s don’t care). Pennsylvania is the 6th largest state in the nation (based on population) and the 9th most densely populated. The state’s largest cities include Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown and Erie. If you’re looking for a job, one of these four cities is going to be your best bet for employment.

Pennsylvania is a great place to practice if you’re an aspiring psychologist. On average, psychologists practicing in Pennsylvania can earn anywhere from $60,000 to $100,000 a year depending on their speciality as well as the industry they work in. Job opportunities for counseling, clinical and school psychologist seem to be the most plentiful, but they also don’t pay as much. If you want to maxmize your earning potential then you should consider a career in industrial-organizational psychology. These professionals earn about $95k per year. The downside is that there are fewer employment opportunities in Pennsylvania for industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologists and competition for available positions is greater.

To practice psychology in Pennsylvania you’re required to have a doctorate degree in psychology from an accredited school and pass a state administered licensing exam. With over 106 accredited schools to choose from Pennsylvania offers students one of the largest selections of psychology programs in the nation. Whether you’re interested in attending a small prestigious graduate psychology program or a large public university, you’ll be able to find it in Pennsylvania.
