Some graduate students focus on a general psychology degree, but most choose to focus on a particular specialty area within psychology such as school psychology, clinical psychology or counseling psychology. The field of psychology you choose to focus on may depend on a number of different factors including your interests, how long you want to spend in school and your career goals.
