What minor should I get with an English Education degree?0ZIO2012-11-05 20:34:02
I am going to school to earn my degree in secondary English education in the hopes of teaching high school English after graduating. However, the teaching field isn't exactly booming right now, and I want to be as marketable as possible. My last school had a minor in TESL, and I thought that that would be an excellent choice, but the place I transferred to doesn't offer that. I was thinking something like philosophy, psychology, writing, or mass communications; but I'm just not sure. The current plan might be to get my BS in Eng. Ed. Then go back for a masters in counseling...[View Answers]
Do I still have a chance at med school?0Sequoia Barber2012-11-05 18:50:26
So I screwed up my college career. I have a 2.2 average now and withdrew out of so many classes in the past dealing with being homeless, medical conditions, depression &and out of a job. I got kicked out of a state college upstate for low grades, and left a community college because i had withdrew out of so many classes. I quit school for a few semesters and became a CNA. (Nurse's aid) I still don't have a job (can't find one) but plan on working for free to build experience it's really frustrating. I'm still living at home with mom. (Renting a room) I'm planning on moving out real soon. I'm going back to school. I graduate in 2 semester's with an AAS in psychology. Last semester I WENT TO school i got these grades A-, B+, A, A, I plan on making my major BIOLOGY &getting excellent grades. Will I still have a chance at med school if i graduate with a 3.5-4.0.? I'm going to a different school where i'll accomplish a diff. GPA. but i screwed up so much i lost hope. I do want to be a doctor. It's been my dream for so long.[View Answers]

In your opinion what is a better degree to have, a Master's in Social work or Master's in education?0Lewis2012-11-05 18:31:19
I like teaching and I like education. I thought about being a history teacher one time, but I think my heart is more into counseling people. I have a sociology major with a psychology and religion minor. I am thinking about applying to a Master's in social work program, but I would also like some sort of degree in teaching. If I get a Master's in social work, and then my license as a Licensed social worker, what kind of degree could I pursue to become a teacher- in middle school or high school in the one of the fields of social studies, history, psychology, religion, and sociology.[View Answers]

Majors and Minors SOS ... Psychology and/or Early Childhood Education??? (Do I have it all together or what?0Trevor2012-11-05 18:00:51
I'm a sophomore in high school; I'm a honor roll student and I practically have my life planned out. Thing is I don't know all of the small details. I want to become a Psychologist. I don't know what school or schools i'm going to go to but I have a few options in mine.So anyways i'm not so sure about the whole minoring thing yet. My question is what kinds of careers can I get with a minor in early childhood education? Is that a bad thing for me to do, or should i switch it up and major in Psychology and minor in early childhood education? Or maybe I should take a double major???? I thought I had it all figured out, but maybe I don't. I'm so confused. Oh and if there's any good colleges that you could recommend then i'm open to your suggestions. lol[View Answers]

Masters or Bachelor's?0Andrew-please help!!!!!very important2012-11-05 17:54:41
I have a degree in education but I guess Teaching is not my thing, I've always wanted Psychology, but at the time (back where I'm from) it was really hard and expensive to get into Psychology. Now, I'm in the States and wanted to get a Masters degree in Psychology, so I took the GRE test and failed because I really, really suck at Math and my English is good but, WOW the English in those tests looks like made up English. So, I don't know what to do, because I really want to go to school. Do you think it would be worth it tho go back to school and get another Bachelors degree or should I just keep on trying on taking the GRE test to go for my Masters..???[View Answers]
Is the 5 year master's degree program worth it?0COLLINS2012-11-05 17:47:33
Ok. so i have gotten the chance to enroll in a 5 year of master's degree program and like pretty much like all things that looks like a good offer, I feel a little skeptical about this one too. So i was wondering if anyone could tell me the pros and cons of enrolling in that program such as "You pay a lot more money in undergraduate" or "you work more in undergraduate" or , "you have to take a lot more courses in both under and graduate school" etc etc. Any info on this will be very helpful. Oh and by the way, my major is biology. I am thinking of changing it to psychology but just know that my major is bio. Thanks a lot![View Answers]

What's the difference between a professional autobiography and a personal statement?0mahwish2012-11-05 17:36:55
I'm applying to some PhD programs in Counseling/Psychology and some schools ask for a professional autobiography, and others ask for a personal statement. I've looked into different forums and books, but they don't really state the difference. What's the difference, specifically?[View Answers]
Does your choice of PhD research restrict your future research options much?0jaelon2012-11-05 17:24:52
Hello everyone I am going to be applying for PhDs this year and have been looking around at what is available. I'm finishing a masters in physics (in the UK) and I have tried to tailor it in the last year so that I have a medical physics/biophysics flavour to it through research projects and reading modules. Generally I've been looking at medical physics/biophysics PhDs, I'm not particularly certain of one specific area I desperately want to study but something roughly within this field is what I was thinking. However, I found a PhD which caught my eye which is in something called "Psychophysics" which appears to be applications of physics to the field of psychology. The PhD is as part of a research group within the department of physics and the group leader says most people in the group come from an experimental physics background. She encouraged me to apply (even though officially she wanted to get going before I graduate, but said for the right candidate she'd wait). It seems interesting and a great inter-university research project, but I'm a little worried that if I were to do a PhD like this it might restrict my research chances later on. Perhaps if I decided I wanted to move back into a more medical physics research area, would this hold me back? I worked in a medical physics group during the summer and most of the people there hadn't done medical physics PhDs- they'd done condensed matter, or atomic physics etc. I also know a lot of people though who always did the same thing- people who've never done research in anything other than say, radio astronomy. Any advice? Do you think I should apply, even if I'm not sure I would do it if it was offered?[View Answers]
Any Tips for getting into law school?0didgeridoo !! 2012-11-05 17:09:20
I am 28 years old and looking into law school. I am currently working on a BS in psychology through University of Phoenix. I am early enough in school to change majors or possibly change schools once I have enough credits towards my Associates. Would it be impossible to be accepted into law school with a degree from University of Phoenix? Also any ideas of what I should do now to help improve my chances later, volunteering, work experience (I am currently in the mortgage industry), ect. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. PS I know I would be older than most Law School students and I am okay with this. This is a career I have thought about off and on since highschool.[View Answers]
Finished MA in Psychology... I'm not 100% sure if I should go for my PhD. Advice?0Ranell2012-11-05 17:08:04
I just finished my MA Psychology degree in the spring of 2012. My concentration was Evolutionary/Social. Through my entire master's program I was all about research. I conducted and developed numerous research projects and was pushed by my colleagues and advisers to apply for PhD programs. They always said I'd be a success at the PhD level. I am currently studying for GRE's to boost my score. Additionally, I have tons of research projects/experience, conference experience, some teaching experience, and I am working on getting a paper published. The thing is... after all the research I've done on PhD programs, I am not sure I want to go or if it is even worth it. You see, I don't want to be professor and I know that's the expected track for PhD graduates. I enjoy research tremendously, and I know I could be an okay/good professor, but I know it would not make me happy. I find that I am happiest when I am either creating experiments or analyzing data alone or with close colleagues. Yes, I am an introvert by nature. I even find conferences somewhat cumbersome. I do know that some PhD grads work outside of academia, but then I wonder if the investment in loans and time is worth it if my end goal is to work for a company, government, etc...? I am currently $40k in debt from my master's degree. After a PhD degree, the debt would increase between $100-$150k, and I wouldn't start my career until my early to mid 30's. I am 27 right now. I also hear it is tough for PhD graduates to attain a job outside of academia because of the perception of being overqualified or less trainable compared to a Bachelor's or Master's graduate. I still plan on taking the GRE's again, continuing research at my alma mater, and going to a few conferences this year, but I have been slacking on all of these things since I have come to to this realization. I feel strongly about making a career out of human resources and perhaps if I want my PhD down the line, enroll in an online PhD program for I/O Psychology. I've also tossed around the idea of starting a career in law enforcement in the hopes of one day being a detective. That would be my second choice, though all law enforcement jobs in my area have been on a hiring freeze for years. I have also considered going back for a bachelor's degree in stats. I think that would likely help me out tremendously. It is also a lot more economical than a PhD, and I could see a greater and quicker return on investment. Then there's the fact of trying to get hired somewhere. I have applied for 500 jobs since mid spring, and have had only two interviews. I recently got rejected for a research position at a research hospital after two strong interviews. I am currently waiting to hear back from a human resources internship at a regional bank that has contacted me. I'm crossing my fingers on that one. Any advice from PhD students, graduates, professionals or anyone of what I should do? Thank you in advanced! TL;DR - Recent MA Psych grad, unsure if he should apply for PhD programs. Enjoys research/analysis, but does not want to work in academia. Advice?[View Answers]
What would be the best degree for this?0AUX 2012-11-05 17:05:07
I'm just curious if anyone knows what psychology degree it would be best to specialize in if you wanted to be a counselor for teenagers in a juvenile delinquent center. I'm already have a bachelors in psychology and a masters in applied behavioral analysis. I really want another masters degree in forensic psychology, but I want to get the best degree possible for the specific career I want, which is counseling troubled teens. Could I get a degree in forensic psychology and be considered for a counselor in that field? Thanks :)[View Answers]
Question about Bachelor's/Master's Degree?0Gamel2012-11-05 17:01:24
I will be finished with my Bachelors degree this December from the university I am attending. I have an Associates in Business Administration and will receive my Bachelor's in Business Administration/Human resources. I have a few questions: If I choose to go on to the master's program, can I get a Masters in another field? i.e. Psychology or Counseling(as this was my second field I would've gone into) How much more useful will a Masters be than a Bachelors? Will it ultimately be worth the extra time and effort with more career opportunities?[View Answers]
Psychology grad school info?0Zinhle2012-11-05 16:59:57
Considering getting a master's or possibly doctorate in psych. How hard is it to get accepted into the programs? How difficult is it once you are in the program? Roughly how expensive at a public state school? At what age can I expect to be ready for a career?(I am currently 20 in my sophomore year of college) To be honest, I am worried that I am not smart enough to get accepted and pass grad school(especially doctoral school) so I don't want to plan on it if its not realistic. I am not dumb by any means, I have never failed a class or anything and my gpa hovers around 3.0 but with increased effort I think a 3.2-3.4 would be manageable. Also don't want to finish school at 30 years old with $100,000 worth of debt.[View Answers]
Why is psychology always known as the cake major and why the hell do you want to spend 4yrs make only 19K?0HELP PLEAZ!2012-11-05 16:48:56
You spend 4 years getting a cake degree. Can't make **** money with it. You must really go to a PhD to make real money. But even with a PhD if you equate the amount of time spent you would of made more in the eng field or other real scientific/medical field with a B.S. and starting. Your career starts when your old. I have a B.S. in Computer Science I started make 55K at the age of 23 I'm working on my Masters. By the time i'm in my 30s I will probably be making over 100K even with a B.S. Why don't people pick more praticle degrees. ......[View Answers]
