Hi there,

Apologies in advance if the topic has been already discussed--had a quick look in the forum but didn't manage to find anything.

I am currently applying for a PhD in Psychology and there's one programme where you get to study/do research on a specific area of Psychology. However, the actual 'title' of the PhD will be a ''PhD in Social Sciences'' although one will practically conduct psychological research. I appreciate that Universities around the globe operate differently in terms of the degrees they award but in my understanding, a PhD in Psychology is different from a PhD in Social Sciences in terms of the career prospects of someone who wants to get into psychological research. Is that correct?

Do folks have any similar experiences or thoughts they would like to share on that topic? Does the 'title' of a PhD make actually such a great difference?

Hope this makes sense.

All the best,

G.
