Building a Psychology Orientation Course: Common Themes and Exercises
Contribution to Books
Psychology is one of the most popular majors in higher education. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in the latest year data are available (2005-2006), 88,134 students earned psychology bacalaureate degrees in the United States (Synder, Dillow, & Hoffman, 2008). Given that "degrees awarded" represents only those who successfully complete a program, the overall number of psychology undergraduate majors is undoubtedly much higher.
