    Undergraduate Psychology Major

    I'm a freshman at college and I'm majoring in psychology. I plan on taking classes that are more on the counseling psychology side instead of addiction studies and I'm going to go for my Master's degree. Since there aren't very many big schools in my state, I'm hoping to go to...

    And I Really Like It

    I've been really interested in psychology since I was about 16 or 17, abnormal psychology especially. I wanted to become a psychologist but, honestly, I really don't want to be in school forever (I would want to get a Ph.D, not just a Master's degree). Plus, I'm not sure if being...

    I Am Now

    You can disregard my last story about it being a goal.  I finally declared my major as psychology.  I wrote a huge story in this group about it a few days ago, but for some reason, when I hit the delete key, it took me back to the experience page, and I'd lost all my...

    Psychology Is The Most Interesting Thing To Me.

    I first started off studying education because I wanted to become a teacher, or at least I thought I did. Once I started observing in the classroom I realized it wasn't for me. As I was obtaining my associates degree in education I was required to take psychology courses. That's...

    Psychology means the world to me,

    especially abnormal psychology. I really want to help people someday, but I am getting so discouraged lately. I would love to meet others who are psych majors; maybe we can help each other out? :)

    Succesful Turnaround.

    In my second year as a Psychology Major (4th year in college) I gotta say I've come a long way from being a BME major. Originally I thought I wasn't going to graduate on time, but It turns out I just have 10 more credit hours until my degree!  While progress has been difficult...

    Introvert Psych Major

    I'm currently a fourth year psych undergrad student and I'm still doubting if psychology is the right path for me. I got into it because I'm interested in Jungian psychology, and as I look back when I was just a first year nursing student, I remember how I get really excited in...

    A Way of Life

    I decided to be a psychology major because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. As I finished out my first two semesters of college I also added on an International Relations degree and a minor in law, this added about 3 more years to my supposed 4 year program, meaning I would be...

    I need help. This doesn't involve myself,

    but I'd like someone to vent with and could possibly diagnose a family member of mine. It scares me on what she's doing and I need help. Maybe just someone to tell me what they think is going on. Just something to lead me. Thank you, and please contact me if you can help.
