MS Psych vs. MS I/O Psych job prospects
#1
I'm considering Walden's Tempo Learning in MS in Psych or MS in I/O Psych. My question is does a Master's degree in a more specialized area (I/O Psych) limit my potential job options? For example: Would a master's in Psych allow me to teach any CC college Psych class and a Master's in I/O Psych only allow me to teach I/O Psych?
What would be the other job opportunity differences for both degrees? I don't want to work in corporate jobs. I'd prefer teaching or local/county government jobs.

Then you should get the Psych. Why specialize, especially in an area that you're not interested in?

I actually took a course in I/O Psych and found it extremely interesting. That's why I was asking about the differences in job opportunities between the two degrees. I'm older and not really going to be looking for full-time private corporate work again (I think), but I was wondering if the I/O degree would be limiting my options for CC teaching or other things.
