Differences btwn psycholinguistics, cognitive psych, speech-language pathology?0suszie2012-11-05 22:52:22
I am a senior in college and am choosing a university for grad school. I love University of Florida's PhD. program in psycholinguistics, but I am a bit concerned about my career options after graduation. I am interested in research and teaching, but also am interested in clinical practice -- moreso, I think I would like to work with language disorders in some way. However, this sounds more like speech-language pathology than clinical psychology, I think. And from the research I've done so far, I am more interested in the coursework and research in a psycholinguistics program. So, what are some differences between the three? If I were to study psycholinguistics, what could I do besides research and/or teach? Would it be possible to work in a psychology-office setting as a psycholinguist? Or should I study cognitive psychology to do that? Like I said, I am definitely interested in research and teaching, but I am trying to be practical and make sure I have career options after spending all this time in school. Any information you can give me would be helpful. Thanks!![View Answers]

Should I add a class in?0nas2012-11-05 21:02:23
My dad keeps bothering me to add in a class. I don't want to because I believe I'm set, plus I'm already taking 2 hard classes. He keeps saying "oh I'm not going to pay for your tuition if you have to take classes in the summer" and he believes I'm going to drop chem (he did not say so, but it's so obvious). Sorry about the rant lol I'm already overwhelmed and it's my first week... Here's my courses: I'm taking 14 credits this semester, and I'm thinking about adding a seminar the next semester which counts as 1 credit, so that's 29 credits in total Freshman year. I want to start off slow because I did not try my hardest in high school, so I want to find my strong and weak points. I'm taking General Chemistry 4 credits General Psychology 3 credits A Writing Class 3 credits (every freshman has to take this, and it's very hard apparently) PreCalc College Math (I've already taken Precalc, but apparently this is very hard as well, and has a high failure rate. Though I might be switching) I'm also adding in a tutoring program that'll tutor me in Chemistry and Precalc. It doesn't have any credits, but it adds classes on to my schedule. Is this enough? Should I really add a class on here?[View Answers]
How to get into Acting school when you don't have any experience as an entertainer?0Alihaa2012-11-05 20:47:45
I'm trying to get into NYU for Acting. I'm in a community college right now. My major is Liberal Arts with a Psychology option. I don't want to finish that off. I want to get into acting right now. My school doesn't have an acting option so what should I do? I don't know what the requirements to get into NYU Acting program but I suppose you should at least have some experience. I don't have any at all. Can someone give me some insight? I just turned 23 today and realized I should chase after my dreams. If there is anything I have left in my life; they are my dreams. My major was originally nursing, because I decided to be more realistic about life. so while I was in school for nursing I got my CNA license. I worked at a hospital this summer and I hated it. I cried and went through a lot of health difficulties dealing with stress. Still am. I can't see myself being anything else. People have failed me, friends, family even my jobs. But God never does. I got closer to him this fall as I started going to church every Sunday. I just feel like if I go for my dreams I'll be successful. Don't know if I'll make it but I want to try. I'm aiming for hollywood. ;)[View Answers]
Will I run into any problems with my plans?0Chandresh2012-11-05 19:55:03
I'm a sophomore in high school, so I'm not sticking with these plans, but I'm strongly considering them. I just want to hear opinions and suggestions from anyone. I'm considering the following: 1. Get a job to make some cash by next year. One that doesn't require working on the Sabbath. 2. Graduate and enroll in Oakwood College's fabulous music program. Possibly study a little psychology while I'm there. 3. Become a music teacher. I like cooking, so I may make a little money off that at home. 4. While I'm teaching music, I may enroll at a local community college (wherever I reside) and major in engineering (most likely civil "CE"). I want to major in engineering (not decided which field), and minor in music and culinary arts. Do you see any problems with this? I would REALLY appreciate earnest answers given with effort. Any opinions would be great! heh Thank you so much![View Answers]
If I want to be an adolescent or family counselor, what should I major in?0`→ bite ぐ Zuizui 2012-11-05 19:31:03

What are my chances of getting accepted to this Medical School Program?0lam2012-11-05 19:20:27
I'm planning on applying to this really competitive medical school program at my college. It's so you can get accepted to med school your junior year and you don't have to take the MCAT. They strongly recommend a 29 ACT and a 3.8 GPA. My stats: I have 4.0 GPA now and am doing all I can to maintain it. I am doing research this summer with the same medical school I plan on applying to. I am a part of a volunteer organization for just freshman. I plan on starting a volunteering club at my school...it's a part of a national organization and am working on getting it started now. I'm double majoring in Psychology and Biology. I am in the Honors Program BUT: I have one W on my transcript already (but am making sure it's the only one) The reason I withdrew was because I had 20 credit hours and I couldn't handle this really intense Honors Biology Lab but I'm taking a regular biology lab in the summer. AND...I only got a 28 on my ACT :( What are my chances...I'm only a freshman now, I have until my junior year to apply[View Answers]

Do you know anyone who has gotten into a Master's Program in International Relations without studying abroad?0Michalea2012-11-05 16:20:54
I am getting my BA in Psychology, but want to go in a different direction for my masters. I am mainly considering MPAs because I eventually want to work in government/with an agency, and I feel like I can probably get accepted even with a BA in Psychology. However, my main interest is in International Relations. The problem is that I was financially unable to study abroad. Applying to IR programsis tempting for me, but doing that means that I would have to choose between programs at the same schools. I attend a fairly pricey private college (35k/year) on nearly full scholarship, but the intl scholarships available still required me to pay $2000-3000 out of pocket to study abroad. That would have essentially meant that my mother had no lights and no food. Even with jobs, as a full time student also supporting my disabled mother - I was unable to even afford a plane ticket. Have you heard of anyone getting into a program like this WITHOUT international experience? Should I just go for the MPA and give up on it for a while? My GPA is 3.7 out of 4.0 and as this is my last year, I expect to top out at 3.8. Advice?[View Answers]
How hard is it to switch your major to nursing?0Donnice2012-11-05 15:05:38
I know it's relatively easy to switch majors and many people do it, but I'm wondering if nursing's different because it's a separate program. As of right now I applied to colleges as a psychology major and I'm still flip flopping between majoring in psychology and majoring in nursing, but I applied as a psychology major because nursing programs are more selective and harder to get into. I'm worried that, if I want to change my major once I'm in school, I won't get into the nursing program at the school I'm already attending. Is it still hard to get into the nursing program once you're already at that school? Will they really deny someone who has decent grades?[View Answers]
How can I become motivated and passionate about something?0Jeet2012-11-05 14:39:17
I am 20 years old, and I have been depressed and anxious for a long time. I also believe that I might have Avoidant Personality Disorder. I don't want to take drugs, and I don't feel like there is any point to artificially making myself feel happy if my life still isn't going to amount to anything. I am in college now, and as a junior, I still don't know what I want to do in terms of a career. One week I'll be set on something, and the next week it'll be something else. I've just decided to major in Psychology and to try to get into a PhD program, as I want to do something to help other people in a field that I know a lot about. My problem is that I have a lot of social anxiety and am unable to pass any job interviews. Sometimes I feel like this problem will never go away, and I decide that I want to just quit college and get a full time job doing something boring like dishwashing, and use video games as my escape for the rest of my life. I can't imagine myself ever having a career or being in a position where I can be comfortable with myself. And when I look back on times in my life, I realize that I could have done a lot of things to improve my situation and outlook on life. For example, I've been writing a novel for years now. I have told several people the idea of the novel, and they have been asking about it since then because they find it interesting. You'd think this would be a good source of motivation, right? Well, I've written a total of three paragraphs, because I find myself unable to become passionate about the story or anything at all. Without passion, I have no motivation. Instead of going out and meeting people, exercising, and doing all the things that normal people like to do, I sit around in my dorm and worry. Instead of writing that novel, I spend my free time playing an online game where I literally just click on a monkey over and over again for hours on end to steal all of its money. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on becoming passionate and motivated about something. I'd appreciate it if you don't answer if you're just going to tell me: -To go to a doctor or any type of counselor -To call the suicide hotline (I am not suicidal) -That I am any sort of evil or inconsiderate person for asking this question Thanks in advance :)[View Answers]

Best colleges for psychology undergrad major0Colombo2012-11-05 12:38:03

Fields in Psychology that make the most money with just a Master's Degree?0Jacy2012-11-05 09:09:39
I'm a Junior in college and I've been reading about certain grad school programs. I think I'm finally getting an idea of what I wanna do with a Master's degree. I know for sure I don't want anything higher than that. The fields I'm most interested in are Clinical Psychology, Clinical Social Work, Mental Health Counseling, and Marriage and Family Counseling. Pretty much anything that involves one on one therapy sessions with patients who either have disorders of some kind or patients who just feel a bit overwhelmed. I keep looking for which field may pay the most and best fits my interest, but there are no websites that give me straight forward answers about salary. Can anyone help? I'm really not interested in I.O. Psychology so that's not an option for me. I know money shouldn't matter as long as I'm happy with what I'm doing, but to be honest what's the point in accumulating so much debt if I'm gonna be broke and struggling like my parents? I don't want a fortune once I graduate grad school, but I wanna know which fields will lead to a better salary as time goes on. Maybe something that starts in the 40,000's and eventually goes up to about 65,000 or something.[View Answers]
