How do I write my resume if I attended two undergraduate colleges?0Burges2012-11-06 06:08:07
I attended one university for a year and a half, under the Biology major. I transferred schools, and graduated from the second university under the Psychology major with a Biology minor. On my resume, should I put that I attended the first school under one major, and that i graduated from the second school under another major? Help![View Answers]
Should I stay in school longer to double major?0Prp2012-11-06 06:04:06
I am wrapping up my biology major in about one or two more semesters. I have come to the conclusion that this was probably the wrong major choice and don't have much interest in pursuing the field once i graduate. I think I want to get into counseling or helping people in a non-hospital setting. My main problem is that I only have a vague idea of where i want to go... and have no experience in those fields. I have been contemplating adding a minor, which i think I will. Most likely in psychology. This may set me back a semester at most, but I can complete those classes at a community college. I am going to a guidance counselor at my school next week, but would just like some opinions: Do you think staying in school maybe another year or year and a half (I've been in school for four years now) and double-majoring is a good option? I would probably double major in psyc or a related discipline.[View Answers]
Question about graduate school specializations?0Danni2012-11-06 05:39:59
I was wondering if your graduate school concentration or major I guess you might call it necessarily has to match your undergraduate major. Right now, I am a psychology major with a minor in mathematics and I'm planning on going to graduate school, hopefully to become a professor. I would rather go to graduate school for mathematics as opposed to psychology, but I'm not sure if I can since it's only my minor. I have taken many math courses, anywhere from calculus and trigonometry to complex real analysis and applied combinatorics, so I feel that I would be well-prepared for a grad program in math, but Im almost apprehensive even to apply with the degree in psychology I will receive. Just for background information, I've considered going for a double-major in psychology and math, but i don't have the time at this point since I only picked up math during my sophomore year. I will without a doubt be able to finish the minor though. Can I still apply to a grad program in math with my current degree path? Thanks.[View Answers]
I have a lot of questions about college, but no one seems to be able to answer them?0Chuck2012-11-06 05:18:59
Like, seriously, when you look something up on google, you're only getting limited information. I'm interested to know the type of things you can do with biology and psychology degrees, and I've tried searching them a bunch of times, but nothing's really helping me. I've heard that one of the ways to find out about something is to ask someone who actually knows. Yeah, I know that sounds kind of redundant... But someone who actually knows, for example, like a professor at a college or something. I'm not really interested in being a counselor, or med school, or working in a lab or anything like that. I don't like business or things like that, either. I am really interested in certain aspects of psychology, but I don't know what I'd do with it...[View Answers]
Would anyone care to review my personal statement?0toyhier2012-11-06 05:03:22
I want to go to University in September (Anglia Ruskin to be specific, 240 points) and this is my personal statement! I want to do Psychology Bsc (hons). Soooo yeah, this is my first draft, please be as harsh as possible, i want to get it the best it can be! Thank you! x ------ My deep interest in psychological studies sprung from an early age, by reading a range of books, my main influence surprisingly geared towards entertainment. The book in question was “Tricks of the Mind”, authored by Derren Brown. I realise this may seem a bit silly, yet in this book he wrote about the study of the mind, how he took psychology at University and loved it. It also gave me an elemental understanding of basic human behaviour, attachments, rapport and even suggestibility. This whole area seemed like an exciting delve into understanding functions, knowing how we work and what secrets of daily life are revealed through the tangled jungle of the human mind. This has carried on fascinating me through to this day. I believe my life experiences, even at this young age, make me an ideal candidate for a degree, and later on a career in psychology. My previous employment has taught me many skills not only for the course, yet also for life, Discipline, patience and punctuality just to name a few. I started work at the age of 15 in a restaurant and café area at Bewl Water Reservoir, This included working in many roles there, but mostly serving food and handling money at the front of house. This is around the time I started to gain an interest in psychology, I found observing customers behaviour fascinating! I began to read up on human behaviour on the internet in order to see patterns in the customers. My boss here was what you could call… Strict, she would usually manage to fire at least 1 person a fortnight. I managed to stay here for over a year under this management and I consider that a great achievement! My boss eventually got outbid on the lease to the restaurant so I decided to move on. I now work at the supermarket, The Co-operative. I feel my range of employment has taught me many transferable skills to proudly bring into a university lifestyle. working in sociable jobs focused around people, makes me a perfect candidate to study such a people based course, as I have had so much practise dealing with differing situations in differing roles, I very much enjoy getting involved in the schools activities and helping spread a good word. I found myself getting involved in speeches and really enjoyed it, something many have trouble with; I grew to love! I eventually decided to apply to become a prefect at Angley, in order to, not only help the inner school workings, but also the whole reputation around the wider community, which I feel is very important being based in such a rural area of Kent. After my degree, I plan to stay on in full time education and progress to a masters degree, maybe to become a psychology teacher, or simply branch out into a more specific area of expertise, such as an occupational psychologist. The research aspect also looks very appealing, the ability to create world leading data and changing the way human-kind thinks is mindblowing! And with my commitment and passion to everything psychology, I think this is a real-life possibility.[View Answers]
College Majors: Popular vs. Practical?0Mittens2012-11-06 04:13:32
To start out I am attending college myself and aspire to graduate some day.That being said, I attended a couple college graduations last year (1 specifically at the University of Minnesota) I noticed a trend, per se, that shocked me, and at the same time didn't. I sat through the names of at least 1,000 graduates, at this one particular ceremony out of several held by the liberal arts school that spring, and noticed something odd. What I found odd is that at least 80-90% of the degrees that these graduates were getting were the same. Out of the 20+ or so degrees that you could choose from at the liberal arts college of the U of M, the vast majority chose a communications/strategic communications degree. Out of all the departments, which have various degrees within each, such as Anthropology, Economics, Gender, Women, &Sexuality Studies, Geography, Global Studies, Journalism &Mass Communication, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, most chose to major in communications. Every now and then there would be something really specific like women's studies or something else, or someone that double majored in communications and a world language, but all in all there was little diversity over the entire graduating class. Is this a trend or does this happen everywhere? I chose to study a very specific major (I/TT; computer science) and have noticed the same thing (several people studying the same major) when I enrolled. What is the intrigue of getting one of the slightly vague "McMajors" like communications. Why would somebody spend 4+ years in college to get a piece of paper that says they know how to speak and communicate?[View Answers]
What degree is best for preparing to go into Neuroscience?0 Ya Love Tang screen name -2012-11-06 02:01:52
I an currently enrolled at a community college. I was suggested by someone to get my A.S. degree, since I want to transfer to a 4 year college and study Neuroscience. But I am finding myself liking my Psychology and Philosophy classes more and I am thinking of going for my A.A. instead. If I got my A.A. would I be able to transfer into the Neuroscience program at a 4-year school?[View Answers]
Should I withdrawal from Physics?0Morgan Rosell2012-11-06 01:37:22
I am a junior at a state university and I am currently in Physics I, which is **NOT** required by my major (Psychology). I had elected to take it because I was considering applying to medical school, but I have since decided against taking the MCAT and such, and I've begun to focus on working towards being admitted to a PhD program. I recently got a 53 on a Physics exam (I was *so* sure I got a 100%, but the pr**ck TA who graded it gave me 2/25 for one problem because I wrote 15sin40 was 9.6 instead of 9.641) The outlook is not looking good in Physics. If I got a 100% on the final and all other exams, I'd scoot out of there with a grade in the high 80s, but let's face it --- I'm not a quantitative person, and I'm not going to get past a B+ on any physics or calculus exam. My current GPA is 3.7. My question is, should I withdrawal from this elective in order to protect my grade, fearing what graduate school admissions will say, or stay and work my TAIL off with the possibility of destroying my GPA .[View Answers]
Psychology or biology major to get into med school?0Shalea2012-11-06 00:36:22
I want to be a child psychiatrist. My university offers a Psychology major with a specialization in Child Behavior, but in order to take all of the pre-requisites for med school I would have no credits left to complete a minor in anything without taking more time to graduate. I'd be a board certified behavior analyst and have clinical field experience in Psychology, though. Whereas, if I became a Biology major, I would fulfill the pre-requisites and research and have credit space for a double minor (I'm thinking I'd pick psychology and philosophy). I'm sort of obsessed with Psychology and it's probably slightly easier to get a higher GPA in it, but the Biology major would have more room for well-roundedness. I have no problem with majoring in Biology as I love the subject too. Which would do better in admissions/on the MCAT? Thank you![View Answers]
What should I pair with a bachelor degree in Psychology?0Toya2012-11-06 00:32:20
I need to settle on another degree to pair with psychology. I don't know if I want to do biology because I dread taking organic chemistry and I don't want to work in a lab on a day-to-day basis. I was thinking information technology specializing in programming but I don't know if I like to type thousands of line of codes. I guess I need this other degree to be the backup plan in case psychology do not get me a job. Any ideas? ps. I am planning on going to graduate school either way.[View Answers]
Does where you go to get your undergraduate degree affect your value in the job market?0Korrina2012-11-06 00:27:42
i live in jacksonville, florida, and i'm going to a community college right now. i'm going to be graduating soon and transferring to a university. i plan to apply at ucf, fsu, usf, and maybe uf. i'm not ruling out unf here in jacksonville just yet. i am a psychology major. i want my masters or higher. after i get my bachelor's, i'll work to help me get through grad school if what is saved and set away for college by my parents is not enough. ucf and usf are large schools with excellent ratings that i would love to go to. unf is a small school with relatively bad ratings and reviews, but it's here at home, and i do like it here. uf and fsu are thought of as the more prestigious schools in florida. just because of the name, will it be an advantage after i receive my bachelors? will getting my bachelors at any of the said colleges be different from getting it at another? i was told that your post-grad degrees and where you get them from is where it really matters, is that true?[View Answers]
What do I do with my life?0Asley2012-11-05 23:51:25
Alright, I realize this question is a little out there but I really don't know what to do with myself. I am 23 years old, graduated high school in 05 and am still trying to figure out what I want to do as far as school and career fields. I am interested in a lot of stuff, mainly stuff like computers, electronics, machinery, alternative energy sources, the NASA program and just space itself, natural environments, philosophy, psychology, music...etc. I have tried different college majors and still feel like I am wasting my time and talent! How do I make a career out of something like this? And most importantly, how do I make a good career out of something like this...one where I don't have to travel somewhere all over the world, and where I can settle down and create a family of my own, but I also want to stay around my existing family and be able to enjoy them as well. I know I would like to make a difference in this lifetime, I just dont know how to do it, I have tried school, thought of many many different career fields, and Im just not happy...anybody have any ideas out there? I would greatly appreciate real input on this. How about any ideas on how I can make it in North Eastern PA without selling my soul to the devil??[View Answers]

Should I get a BS in Psychology or a BA in Psychology?0Amina2012-11-05 22:25:44
I want to be a social worker but that degree is not offered at my University. The difference between the BS and BA at my school is that in a BS you will minor in a science and a BA in an art. I would like to minor in a language but I hear BA's are not as lucrative as BS's. I know I will probably need a master's eventually as well. So what do you think?[View Answers]
Question about going to college?0Dianara2012-11-05 20:45:58
I have been thinking about going back to school, I never went right after I graduated HS and then I had a baby, I am not even sure where to start. I am only 20, but I already feel like I am not headed in a direction I want to be career-wise. I really want to go into psychology, but I am not sure what area to go into. I think I either want to do adolescent psychology or maybe even sex psychology (I am not sure the actual name of it). My goal in life is to try and help people be comfortable with who they are. How long can I expect that a degree will take me? Do you know what the average income of these professions are in the US? [View Answers]
