In this episode, I interview Jane Halonen from the University of West Florida. Jane is co-author of the book The Psychology Major’s Companion: How to Get You Where You Want to Go with Dana Dunn. Jane and I discuss preparing psychology majors to respond to the microaggressions they face due to misperceptions about the major (it is easy) and the value of the bachelor’s degree in psychology (graduates won’t be able to get a job). Jane shares the creative formats her positive psychology students use to present their five-year plans and the unique way she incorporates the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major into her capstone course. Jane and I play “What Degree Does This Job Require?” and talk about ways students can engage in self-directed career exploration and professional development.
