After years of formal education and training, many psychologists choose to work in academia. Some will find work as a college professor or teacher in a university or secondary school. Others will work in a school system as a school psychologist. Still others will work with high school and college athletes as a sports psychologist. All of these fall under the umbrella of psychology and can lead to rewarding careers in the field.
