Write a 1-2-page summary of the TWO sub-disciplines that you are most interested in pursuing, and why.
What career opportunities are open to Psychology majors, with a baccalaureate degree and a graduate degree?
We will be learning about the many career options that are open to Psychology majors throughout the semester. For this assignment, conduct research on 2 careers that require only a B.S. degree and 2 careers that require a graduate degree. Write a 3-4 page summary of what you discover, including how the careers relate to your sub-disciplinary interests in #2 above. You should include all aspects of each career, including specific work activities/ tasks performed, degree requirements, work settings, starting salaries/ earning potential, non-financial rewards, undesirable aspects, projected demand, and attributes needed for success.
What about graduate school?
After reading and discussing chapter 15, carefully consider the commitment, time, and resources needed to get into and complete graduate study. Then, explain why or why not you believe you will pursue graduate study. How is it related to your career goals? Write a 1-page summary of your thoughts on graduate school in your future.
Which career is “the best fit for me” at this time?
Choose ONE job/career from #3 above and explain why this is “the best fit for me” now. Link this to your sub-disciplinary interest (#2 above), your work interests and values (from #1 above), and your thoughts about graduate school (#4 above). Next, describe some specific things you can do during your college career to help you prepare for this career/job opportunity (specific courses to take, related minors or double majors, extra-curricular activities, internships, volunteer work, part-time employment, job shadowing, networking, etc.).
