Dr. Burchett teaches PSY 300 (Career Preparation for Psychology Majors) at California State University, Monterey Bay. The class focuses heavily on learning about psychology-related career paths and taking steps as an undergraduate to be a competitive applicant for jobs and graduate programs of interest. Below are links to Dr. Burchett’s PSY 300 class slides (accessible only to CSUMB students, faculty, and staff logged in to their CSUMB accounts), which correspond with the class textbook, Majoring in Psychology: Achieving Your Educational and Career Goals (2nd Ed.) by Helms and Rogers (2015) (CSUMB e-book access; Amazon.com purchasing options).
Dr. Burchett has chosen to make these available to the CSUMB community so that students outside of PSY 300 can learn about and refer back to information about career paths in psychology. Please note: these are active class slides, including announcements and class project information as well as broad career information, and some context will be lost by examining them without being in class to hear the content.
