Research shows that today's students are unique. Whether anxious, overwhelmed, or too busy to ask for help, modern students trust and turn to the resources at their fingertips for guidance. Tara Kuther created The Psychology Major's Handbook for this purpose, to bridge the gap between advisor and manual. Created to support and follow along with a student through college, this text provides the support of an advisor as students navigate choosing a major, learning how to study, writing papers, and deciding what to do after college. Within each chapter, Kuther supports learners in applying concepts to their own lives through embedded exercises. The updated Sixth Edition encourages students to take an active role in their education and explains all of the ways that students can influence their own college experiences. Three individual chapters emphasize academics and cover crucial study and college skills, such as writing a review paper, and an APA Style empirical paper. The final four chapters of the text focus on bachelor's and graduate opportunities to help students to look past graduation.
