Overview

This text addresses the growing need among students and faculty for information about the careers available in psychology at the bachelor's and graduate level. Many students taking a first course in psychology are unaware of the breadth of psychology and its many sub disciplines; this text gives them exposure to careers in each of the areas of psychology--including choices that students may never have considered.
