9780205829651: The Psychology Major: Career Options and Strategies for Success (5th Edition)

Strategies for success for the psychology major

Landrum/Davis provides strategies for success that will allow students to achieve their career goals, whatever they may be. The authors provide fundamental tips and advice that can be useful to all students, but especially useful for psychology majors.

This text standardizes and catalogs much of the practical advice that professors often give to students—providing tips on how to do well in all classes, how to find research ideas, and how to write papers in general APA format. Also, the book contains up-to-date career information that faculty might not normally have at their fingertips, including the latest salary figures for a number of psychology-related jobs and occupations.

About the Author:

Dr. R. Eric Landrum received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology with an emphasis in Quantitative Methodology from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 1989, and joined the Boise State University Psychology Department in 1992. He served as Chair of the Psychology Department from 1996-2000. For the 2005-2006 academic year, he served as the Interim Chair of the Psychology Department. The general trend underlying Dr. Landrum's research centers on college student success. How can we best create a teaching and learning environment that allows students to achieve their academic goals? Much of this work involves the development of survey and questionnaire instruments to measure behavioral outcomes--involving good theoretical design of instruments, establishment of validity and reliability, and other measurement operations.

 

Stephen F. Davis is Roe R. Cross Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas. Currently he is Visiting Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Texas Wesleyan University and Distinguished Guest Professor at Morningside College. In 2002—2003 he was the Knapp Distinguished Professor of Arts and Sciences at the University of San Diego. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology from Southern Methodist University and his PhD in experimental psychology from Texas Christian University. In 2007 he was awarded the honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by Morningside College. His research, which always includes student assistants, has investigated such diverse topics as academic dishonesty, learning versus grade orientation of students, Type A personality, the Impostor Phenomenon, and the behavioral effects of ingesting toxic metals. He is the author of more than 300 journal articles, 31 books, and more than 900 convention presentations.

Review:

 “Excellent and concise reviews of the relevant history of Learning Theory.  Incorporation of contemporary evolutionary psychology theory into the author's explanations and conceptualizations of human and animal learning and behavior. Applied chapters (such as the final chapter) that draw together the theories into real world examples.”

        -  James Crosby, Sam Houston State University

 

“Accessible, clear writing style. Solid research foundation. Many and relevant examples to real world applications. Nicely organized and follows the logicla progression of coverage typical for my course - from history of the field to current applications.”

        - Margherita Rossi, Broome Community College

 

“Very well written and organized in simple, easy to understand language which will not bore students. Text includes nice examples and inclusion of studies and discussion of concepts relating to humans. Author did an excellent job connecting each chapter the prior material and the overall theme- adaptive learning”

          - David Rentler, University of the Rockies
