I hope someone here can provide me with some info. on my question. Any help is appreciated. I am currently trying to figure out what the best route is, I am considering pursuing a masters in psychology with the hopes to land a community college instructor gig. My question is, how saturated is the market with MA's trying to do the same thing and even PhD's vying for the same positions. Also does it matter if the MA in is general psychology or social psychology in terms of landing one of these jobs? Secondly how good of an idea is trying to get a 2year gig as a RA in psychology and then trying to reapply to a PhD? Is the risk of not getting in again worth it over going for the MA and getting into debt? Again, any information is appreciated, particularly curious about the market for community college jobs and whether the type of MA matters. Thank you.
