From the Back Cover:

Praise for the first edition:

“A worthy addition to the growing literature on the keys to success for undergraduate psychology majors, the Helms and Rogers text is likely to be one of those books that conscientious psychology students refer to again and again.”
William Addison, Eastern Illinois University

“The Helms and Rogers text truly focuses on helping students achieve their educational and career goals. The authors go beyond the typical career books by presenting a realistic, robust, and diverse picture of possible careers in psychology. Bringing a variety of careers to life, the professional spotlights and profiles of real psychologists represent the true diversity of careers in the field. I look forward to discussing it with my students.”
Tracy Zinn, James Madison University

Already widely considered the most comprehensive and accessible text for psychology majors, this second edition of Majoring in Psychology: Achieving Your Educational and Career Goals is thoroughly updated to reflect the latest research data in the field, as well as important information on recent changes to the GRE. Readers are first introduced to information, strategies, and resources that support success in psychology educational and career pursuits – issues such as the nature and utility of a psychology degree, career decision making, college success, and preparation for graduate school and employment. A series of exercises, resources, and suggested readings provided in each chapter further enhance clarity. Later chapters introduce readers to the diverse areas of study available within the broader field of psychology, with special attention given to the nature of these subfields and their variances in educational requirements, training, and career options – critical information to help support a student’s efforts in developing more specific educational and career goals that are in line with particular interests and skills. Further insights in this section are provided via An Insider’s Perspective and Professional Spotlight boxes that showcase the career and viewpoint of a pair of internationally recognized psychologists working in their respective subfields.
