THE PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR'S HANDBOOK offers undergraduate students the information they need to make informed decisions about whether to pursue psychology as a major and career, and to succeed in psychology. The author encourages the student to become an active learner and take control of his or her education and future. The first chapter introduces students to the scope of psychology and the subspecialties within psychology. It also provides information on the wide range of settings in which psychologists work. Subsequent chapters help students assess their skills, abilities, and interests, as well as develop habits and strategies that promote success in psychology classes. Career opportunities at the undergraduate and graduate levels are presented so students can decide whether psychology is an appropriate major for them. Additional chapters discuss the world after college including detailed suggestions on how to find a job with a B.A., and how to apply to graduate school. This text makes a great addition to any course in psychology, and can be bound into any Wadsworth textbook for a customized text!!
