What can I do with a Master's or higher in Psychology?

I'm currently a junior in college, and I still have no idea what I want to do with my life. Psychology is something that has always intrigued me, and the psych classes I have taken have been some of the few that I actually enjoyed taking. In whatever degree I decide on, I plan on continuing my education in Graduate school, unless it happens to be a degree where that is not necessary, though I doubt that many majors these days are useful without a Master's degree. My question is: What can I do with a Master's or PhD in psychology? What is Grad school for a psych major like? Roughly, how long should I expect to spend attaining that degree? I also have another question up, about how one should decide if they should pursue a degree in Psychology, if anyone has anything to contribute to that question.
