3 WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY? Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior. The discipline embraces all aspects of the human experience - from the functions of the brain to the actions of neurons (e.g., biological psychology, from child development to care for the aged (e.g., developmental psychology). In every conceivable setting from scientific research centers to mental health care services, "the understanding of behavior" is the enterprise of psychologists. The ultimate goal of psychology is to examine and explain the mechanisms that underlie thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Applications of psychology are very diverse. WHY STUDY PSYCHOLOGY? An undergraduate major in psychology offers a student preparation for a wide variety of careers. Many majors find psychology to be an excellent preparation for such service-oriented professions as social work, counseling and guidance, special education, and management. Those who pursue graduate work in one of the many fields of psychology often seek positions in hospital settings, teaching and research positions, or applied human services. In addition, the study of psychology provides knowledge and an understanding of behavior that has applications in other professions as well, including nursing, medicine, law, teaching, business, and public relations. CAREERS IN PSYCHOLOGY Psychology is relevant to many occupations involving interactions with others. Grounded in the liberal arts tradition, psychology prepares students for employment in a variety of areas. Many careers directly related to psychology require education beyond the bachelor's degree and CWRU psychology majors are well prepared for graduate studies in psychology, medicine, law and business. Individuals find work in various psychology sub disciplines including: Industrial Psychologist Clinical Psychologist Educational Psychologist Sports Psychologist Forensic Psychologist Child and Family Psychologist Drug and Alcohol Counselor Teacher/Professor Experimental Psychologist Market Research Analyst Recruitment Consultant Human Resource Manager Corporate Administration Rehabilitation Specialist Career Counselor Correctional Services PSYCHOLOGY AT CWRU For additional information regarding the Program of Psychology including program contact lists, as well as detailed information on faculty interests/laboratories, please visit psychology.case.edu.

14 SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR PSYCHOLOGY MAJORS A. Psychology Honors Program: During their junior year, qualified Psychology majors may apply to the department's Honors Program, which leads to a B.A. with Honors in Psychology. The program's purpose is to provide the students with an intensive, supervised research experience in areas of their choice. This is one way to fulfill the senior capstone requirement. The program consists of PSCL 375 and PSCL 395 and begins in Spring Semester of the junior year, when students receive instruction in research design and methodology. This provides the foundation for students to work under close supervision with a department faculty member in the fall of their senior year. At the end of that semester, the research project is written in scholarly form, and presented for consideration of graduation with Honors in Psychology. Junior majors with a minimum of 3.25 average in Psychology and a 3.0 overall GPA may apply. The Honors Program requires a great deal of work, and only students with a serious interest in Behavioral Sciences should apply. An important part of the Honor's program is selection of the faculty advisor. A student should select a faculty advisor with interests as close as possible to the area the student intends to research. As far ahead of time as possible, contact the faculty member to inquire about the possibility of doing an honor's thesis with them. You may either suggest an idea of your own or ask the advisor for a project that you might carry out. In either case, there should be a firm understanding of what will be accomplished (preferably written) before the student registers for the honor's program. B. Integrated Graduate Studies (IGS) Program: The IGS enables qualified undergraduates to complete the academic work for a Bachelor's degree and a Master of Arts degree within four years. It provides particularly good preparation for further graduate work in psychology or related fields such as medicine, social work, special education, sociology, biology, and management. Students accepted into the program must complete at least 27 credit hours of graduate course work during their senior year, plus a Master's thesis or comprehensive exam for a Master of Arts in Psychology degree. The minimum standards for acceptance are: An overall GPA of 3.2, completion of the university's distribution requirements, 9 hours of undergraduate credit, and completion of a Psychology Major with at least a 3.2 grade point average. Students should apply during Spring Semester of their sophomore year, or as early as possible during their junior year. Participation in the IGS does not preclude involvement in the department's Honors Program. For more information, consult the university's General Bulletin or contact Dr. Lee Thompson CWRU Undergraduate Psychology Handbook 14

15 ADVISING IN THE PSYCHOLOGY PROGRAM A. Faculty Advising Once you declare Psychology as your major or minor, you are assigned an advisor. You and your advisor must meet to review the courses that you are planning to take before you can complete the registration process for the semester. This is to ensure that the courses that you are registering for meet the requirements for your major/minor or general College of Arts and Sciences requirements. Once you have met with your advisor, go to SIS to register for your classes. We also have a Blackboard advising site focused on the undergraduate programs in Psychology and Communication Sciences. B. Graduate Student Advising Graduate students in the Program of Psychology are able to meet with undergraduate students. You will not be assigned a graduate student advisor, but if you have questions or would like to hear a student perspective on aspects of the Psychology Program at CWRU, feel free to contact one of the members of the Psychology Program s Undergraduate Advising Initiative. These graduate students are also able to meet with students to discuss: information about applying to psychology graduate programs, getting involved in psychology research, and other topics. Note that meeting with the graduate student advisors does NOT replace meetings with your primary faculty advisor. You must meet with your primary faculty advisor, whereas meeting with the graduate students is optional. If interested in meeting with a graduate student mentor, please see the following website: CWRU Undergraduate Psychology Handbook 15

16 WELCOME TO THE CWRU PSI CHI CHAPTER Psi Chi is a national honor society whose purpose is to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology. Members participate in fundraisers, socials, community services, and the real world's various psychological arenas. membership in Psi Chi is an earned honor which lasts for life. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate students who are making the study of psychology one of their main interests and who meet the minimum qualifications.
