Congratulations on declaring your psychology major! Psychology is among the most popular majors in college today­—yet, it’s possible that you chose it without realizing how very broad and technical the field is. Not to worry. In this book, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the whole curriculum, from rat mazes and statistics to abnormal psychology and psychotherapy, and you’ll dive into some of the field’s most enduring debates.

Beyond the what and why of the psychology major, this book provides you with tips you can put into practice from day one. These include:
-How to maximize your learning inside and outside the classroom
-Advice on landing a solid internship
-Where to find research and service opportunities
-Steps for applying (and paying) for graduate programs

When you finish this book, you’ll have a clear idea of why you’re learning what you’re learning, and how the skills you build in your psychology major will help you solve real-world problems. You’ll be able to take an active hand in your education—and own your psychology major.
