Career/Grad School Tip of the Month: Select classes wisely

1. Take classes outside of Human Development and Psychology!!! Use elective courses outside of your major or minor to build skills you will need in your job and/or that will enhance your marketability for careers/grad school (e.g., writing, public speaking, and computer skills, learning a second language).

2. Select classes within your major or minor which complement your career or graduate school goals. These may not always be obvious. For example, those interested in School Psychology should almost certainly take Tests and Measurements, not simply developmental and counseling courses. What’s the best way to pick out the less obvious ones? Talk to your advisor!
