Both these professions have different job profiles and job prospects. Psychiatrists are doctors who work with patients suffering from mental health disorders and prescribe medication whereas; Psychologists are behavior specialists and work with people to help them in their holistic development. Even though these professions sound similar and involve working with people with mental health disorders and/or behavior issues the educational qualifications required for both these fields are very different. You will have to complete your MBBS followed by MD in Psychiatry to become a psychiatrist.
You can go to the following link to know more about psychology: http://www.youngbuzz.com/careers/careerdetail/psychologist-career
Computer Science is also, a very good career option. You can either get your bachelors in computer engineering or complete BCA or B.Sc. IT or B.Sc. Computer Science etc, followed with MCA to work in this field.
Namitha, all these three careers are good but you will have to decide which one is best for you. You can talk to people in these professions to know more about these careers as this can help you in deciding whether this is something you would want to do for the rest of your life.
Hope this helps! Do let us know if you need further assistance and get back to us with your feedback. Good luck!!
