Description: Anyone considering psychology as an undergraduate major needs to read this book. Schultheiss provides a comprehensive strategy aimed at helping undergraduates use self-exploration tools to decide if psychology is the right major for them and learn how to get the most from their education. She offers a detailed, reader-friendly explanation of psychology and its subfields and an examination of the importance of diversity and multiculturalism in present-day practice. Chapters on the world of work for psychology majors and the options for graduate study fill out the strategy. Throughout, Schultheiss draws heavily on the vocational psychology literature, giving readers intellectual and practical exposure to the tools of the field. Experiential and self-assessment exercises help readers focus their thinking, and strategies for decision making and stress management aid them in coming to terms with this important life decision. After finishing this book, readers will have a comprehensive picture of the opportunities psychology offers as a field of study and a career and will also come to a greater understanding of themselves and their personal motivations.
