The number of psychology graduate degrees increased from 2004 to 2013 (32% for doctoral degrees and 54% for masters ). This growth in the graduate psychology training population impacts the graduate psychology workforce, including increasing the competition for faculty positions and the types of careers and job opportunities graduate psychology degree holders ultimately pursue. Join Karen Stamm, PhD (Director of APA’s Center for Workforce Studies) and Garth A. Fowler, PhD (Associate Executive Director of APA’s Graduate and Postgraduate Education and Training Office) as they take you through a deep dive of data and information on the psychology graduate workforce pipeline. They address questions such as:

• What does the current psychology graduate population look like, including gender and racial/ethnicity composition, and the type of undergraduate preparation they bring when entering graduate programs?
• What career pathways do psychology graduates follow and how does their psychology training relate to work activity?
• What are psychology faculty salaries across the country, and are there gender and race/ethnicity gaps in these salaries? What do we know about gender and racial/ethnic composition of psychology faculty by rank, institution type, and geographic location?
