Degree almost coming to an end!!?0byran2012-11-06 04:45:42
I hope someone can help. I am in my third year of my psychology degree and will be finishing in June, but I am afraid for my future. I want to pursue a career in psychology and am considering either going onto do a Masters in health psychology or go on to do a PhD. But first i want to take a year out from studying and get a job as a psychologists/researchers assistant, but the thing is I don't know how to get one of these jobs. In the Psychologist's magazine memorandum section there seems to only a few of these types of jobs available and in most cases they seem to be in an area I am not particulary interested in. How do I find more psychologist/researcher assistant jobs. I have searched the internet with no luck. I would also appreciate some advice from people who are already psychologists - that is, could you tell me about how you came to be where you are - the jobs/training, etc you have done on the way to your current role.[View Answers]

What is the difference in a Psychology versus Social Work degree?0Deric2012-11-06 00:26:37
I am currently majoring in Psychology for my undergraduate degree. And I am keeping it that way....however, it looks like the Masters degree in Social Work and Clinical Psychology really kind of overlap as far as jobs are concerned? Since in Social Work you can focus on mental health, as well. Which is why I am interested in Psychology. Can anyone tell me if there is any huge differences in getting a MS in Social Work versus Clinical Psychology? Same goes for the Ph D. in both fields? What kind of jobs ar available to each degree? What is the salary difference? Etc?[View Answers]

What can I do with a BA/MA in Psychology?0Channel2012-11-05 10:00:46
I'm definitely getting my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, but for a Master's Degree and a career, I have no idea what I wanna do or specialize in. I really want to help people and I want to make a good income as well. The balance is important to me. What areas of psychology jobs are the most interesting/most rewarding/well-paying.

I had to write an essay for a mid-term..can someone help correct my rough draft?..?0Rosalie2012-11-05 05:46:47
B.F.Skinner(Burrhus Frederic Skinner)was born March 20, 1904, in the small Pennsylvania town of Susquehanna. His father was a lawyer, and his mother a strong and intelligent housewife. His upbringing was old-fashioned and hard-working. Burrhus was an active, unconstrained boy who enjoyed the outdoors. His cultivation was of the old ways and hard working. The tragic point of his childhood life was the death of his brother at the age of 16 of a cerebral aneurysm. Burrhus attended Hamilton College in upstate New York. He didnt fit in very well, not enjoying the fraternity parties or the football games. To make things worse, Burrhus was an atheist at a school that required daily chapel attendance. He wanted to be a writer and got his BA in english. After some traveling, he decided to go back to school, this time at Harvard. He got his masters in psychology in 1930 and his doctorate in 1931, and stayed there to do research until 1936. Burrhus said "I had apparently failed as a writer, but was it not possible that literature had failed me as a method?" in his autobiography: Particulars of my life. In 1936, Burrhus moved to Minneapolis to teach at the University of Minnesota. There he met and soon married Yvonne Blue, they had two daughters. In 1945, he became the chairman of the psychology department at Indiana University. In 1948, he was invited to come to Harvard, where he remained for the rest of his life. He was a very active man, doing research and guiding hundreds of doctoral candidates as well as writing many books. While not successful as a writer of fiction and poetry, he became one of our best psychology writers, including the book Walden II, which is a fictional account of a community run by his behaviorist principles. He became one of the leaders of behaviorism and his work contributed immensely to experimental psychology. He also invented the 'Skinner box,' in which a rat learns to obtain food by pressing a lever. B.F. Skinner also invented the "baby tender." It is important to note that the baby tender is not the same as the "Skinner box," which was used in Skinner's experimental research. He created the enclosed heated crib with a plexiglass window in response to his wife's request for a safer alternative to traditional cribs. B.F. Skinner is famous for his research on operant conditioning and negative reinforcement. He developed a device called the "cumulative recorder," which showed rates of responding as a sloped line. Using this device, he found that behavior did not depend on the preceding stimulus as Watson and Pavlov maintained. Instead, Skinner found that behaviors were dependent upon what happens after the response. Skinner called this operant behavior. Skinner's observation of the effectiveness of incremental training of animals led him to formulate the principles of programmed instruction for human students. For over two decades skinner worked on his book Verbal Behavior. In a fundamental sense, it was an intensive analysis of 'man thinking' and social behaviour. It extended his behaviourist position to the most difficult domains of human activity and aroused considerable controversy. The book is almost entirely theoretical, involving little experimental research in the work itself. Skinner received numerous awards in his life time. He received the National Medal of Science from President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968. The National Medal of Science is an honor bestowed by the President of the science and engineering who have made important contributions to the advancement of knowledge in the fields of behavioral and social sciences, biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics. Three years later, he received the Gold Medal of the American Psychological Foundation, in which was given to recognize life achievement in and enduring contributions to psychology. In 1972 he was given the Humanist of the Year Award of the American Humanist Association. This award was established to recognize a person of national or international reputation who, through the application of humanist values, has made a significant contribution to the improvement of the human condition. Just eight days before his death, he received the first Citation for Outstanding Lifetime Contribution to Psychology by the American Psychological Association in 1990. B.F.Skinner was was a highly influential American psychologist,author, inventor, advocate for social reform. Skinner gave a new aspect to behavorism that has outstanding contribution to psycholgy and humanity as a whole. B.F.Skinner has and will always be one of the most brilliant American psychologist and an influential exponent of behaviourism.[View Answers]

Graduate School in Clinical Psychology?0shakela2012-11-04 19:53:52
I am studying Clinical Psychology and I will be receiving my Bachelor's degree this year from McGill. I have a decent GPA but I do not believe that it is high enough to get into a great university for graduate school. Because of this, I'm planning on going to Concordia for my Master's degree, and perhaps get my PhD in Clinical Psychology at a more prestigious school (maybe McGill again, or University of British Columbia). My question is, is it alright to obtain a Master's degree at a less prestigious school, and receive a PhD at a "greater" school? Will this harm my career opportunities? I know my question may seem silly, but any advice is appreciated. Thanks![View Answers]

Last year of Psychology Degree! What do I do next?0Roseline2012-11-04 07:41:35
I'm currently in my last year of doing my psychology u/graduate degree. Once I finish I want to go and do more studying, (I want to either do a Masters in health psychology or do a PhD - haven't completely decided yet) as I want to pursue a career in the psychological field, but first I want to get a job as a researchers assistant or a psychologists assistant for about a year or two to gain some work experience. Where is the best place to find an extensive range of available jobs for these positions. I have noticed that in the memorandum section of 'The Psychologist' magazine there is not many positions available. Even in the Guardian newspaper there does seem to be much. Also one more thing if I choose to do a Masters in health psychology is it possible to get a student loan to help me with living costs?[View Answers]
Which degree is better if I might have an interest in social work; psychology or behavioral science?0grey2012-11-04 05:45:17
I'm currently undecided as to what profession I would like to go into... I'm interested in psychology, but I have heard that you cannot do much with an AA degree in this field. I am very open to doing a double major and am very committed. I would like to pursue a BA in the future (and possibly a masters), but just in case things don't work out financially, I want to earn an the best double associates possible. Of the courses I am interested in at the college Im attending, which of the following do you think would open the most doors career-wise/financially: Psychology or Behavioral Science+ (one of the following as a companion) Criminal Justice, Social and Behavioral Science, Business Administration, Human Services, Sociology, or History I am interested in things like certain types of social work, possibly counseling, (I love history, but do not want to teach) working with criminals to analyze behavior (though I do not have an interest in "just" being a police officer), and I enjoy working in certain types of business. Advanced math is not one of my strong suites, but I did well in my finance class in high school, so I really don't want to crunch numbers ALL day- as in accounting. I also really enjoyed taking sociology, something about all those statistics fascinate me. When it boils down to it, I really just want the best option for my interests that can help me advance at the associates degree level both personally and financially. Any advice is appreciated! I don't expect anyone to "choose" for me, just some educated advice. Thanks.[View Answers]
