Tennessee Psychology Schools and Programs

Tennessee has a rich culture and colorful history – some good, some not so good. Tennessee was the birth place of the Ku Klux Klan in Pulaski in 1866 and witnessed the assassination of Martine Luther King in Memphis in 1968. On a more positive note, Tennessee played an instrumental role (no pun intended) in the early development of rock and roll and blues music. In fact, Beale Street in Memphis is known for being the birthplace of the blues. It was also home to Sun Records, where iconic musicians and singers such as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis all launched their music careers.

Tennessee has a strong and vibrant economy. Its main industries include agriculture, tourism, and manufacturing. One of Tennessee's top attractions is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is the most visited national park in the nation. Other popular tourist attractions include the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga and Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis.

If you're an aspiring psychologist, Tennessee is a great place to practice psychology. The mean annual wage for psychologists in Tennessee is about $60,000 to $80,000 a year, and the cost of living is relatively low so you're paycheck will go farther. Job opportunities are most plentiful for clinical, counseling and school psychologists, but pay in these fields is at the lower end.
