Good job alternative for someone interested in psychology?
Say you're interested in psychology and would like to work in therapy, but you have a necessity to make a higher income after graduation (have people to take care of). Does anyone have suggestions for a career that pays well (typically $55-60,000 up) that might work for a social science-minded type of person? Might be easier if I was a science/math type of person, but I realize I can't be something I'm not... I plan to get a Master's degree if needed (might not have the money & time to realistically get a Ph.D). Thanks for any advice you can give me! I'm really at a crossroad here...

Doesn't take much brain power for psychology so it would appear that social work pay would be proportional to that, but if it's any consolation the government tends to pay you guys crazy amounts to do work for them so you should try the government.
