The average pay rate for psychologists in Arizona is $63,000 a year. However, the overall demand for psychologists is expected to grow at 10% (BLS) a year for the next few years due to population growth, an aging population and better funding for mental health treatment. Arizona requires a doctoral degree in psychology before you can site for the psychology licensing exam or the behavioral analyst exam. Licensing exams are supervised by the Arizona Board of Examiners.
