How many years of college does it take to be a psychologist?

Report as

A lot. This is a field where there is a huge supply (that is, a lot of people want to do it) and not a big enough demand for that supply. So... employers can be very picky. You need at least a masters so we are talking 6 years minimum. To be competitive you may even need a Ph.D., it depends on the job market when you graduate.

It takes 4 years for a B.A or B.S degree though this can be completed much sooner. A masters program can take 18 months to 2 years while it takes under 4 years to get a Ph.D. For more information visit http://psychology.about.com/od/careersinpsychology/f/psychologist-schooling.htm.
