hi,
I think as your lecturer suggests you should do MA. Cos, A HR should possess a knowledge of reading a human's mind and being a Psychology student you can excel in this...
(Industrial psychology was first developed in the United States in the early 1900s and has come to be applied, usually through personnel and office administrations, to industrial management in industries in other parts of the world, particularly in those countries where a concern has developed for the systematic and scientific examination of the problems of workers in industry)

Hi Nishita
First and foremost don't be confused.
The carrer whatever it be should be accordance to ur liking...because it is what u have to do a carre in it....so if u choose something in which have liking u give more dedication then the other implemented by ur professor or anyone else.I am not saying ur professor may br wrong....u can always take the advice from the seniors but the decission should be ur own...Take the right decission without getting confused..Study about the course ......the prospects after completion.....etc
All the very Best for the Future

Dear NISHITA,

Psychology teaches you a broad range of skills, spanning those traditionally associated with both arts and science degrees, and offers you a wide range of career prospects, including becoming a professional psychologist in, for example, the health service, education, or business.

This degree allows you to embark on careers in areas such as Market Research, Human Resources, Teaching and Social Work, or may train as a Professional Psychologist, for example in Clinical, Health, Educational, Forensic or Occupational Psychology.

As a matter of fact, Psychology is really about life and HR is an important part of professional life. So you must not be dissapointed with your present educational status. As you already have a BA (Psychology) degree, I would suggest that you go for PGDip (HRM), if possible select a daytime program. Besides, you can always register as a part-time M.A. student while doing another activity.

For more information about career planning, please read my previous posts at CiteHR:

1. Career Development Roadmap (PPT)

2. Managing your CAREER in... (PPT)

You may also find some pertinent details regarding PGDip courses by reading these posts:

1. Diploma & PGD in HR and

2. Certification in HR.

Please don't get confused or depressed. Just remember "What man can imagine, Man can do". While it's difficult to imagine what we don't have right now, but if you are optimistic and start thinking outside of the box, God will create the perfect career path for you!. Start thinking like a Psychologist :) ok.

Wish you all the very best for your future, and hope that you'll learn alot about HRM from this forum. Good luck!

Warm Regards,

As per my understandings PSYCHOLOGY has huge demand in market if you have a good Communication skills.
Assisting/helping a Country head will not be possible in common lay man language.
today most of IT employees need this.
Go in this field only.
Slow but definately wins the race
Good luck
