Description
Psychology majors often have difficulty transitioning from being a college student to a working psychology graduate. Introduction to Academic and Career Opportunities in Psychology is designed to help psychology majors plan for careers after graduation, before they graduate.

Developed by several psychology instructors, this title offers students multiple perspectives on:

  • Psychology-related careers.
  • How degrees shape career opportunities.
  • Developing a strong network of colleagues.
  • Prevailing myths about majoring in psychology.

This collection of readings, articles, and resources places a special emphasis on multicultural issues in the psychology workforce. Introduction to Academic and Career Opportunities in Psychology is an essential guide for any psychology major preparing for life during and after their degree.
