500 words or more Last week, we took a brief break from focusing on specific psychology subspecialties to talk about career options.  There are numerous sources within the Course Syllabus that you may access to you as you think about your own interests and goals. For this purpose of this week’s Forum discussion, we will assume that students in this course are interested in psychology-related careers.  As you’ve discovered by now, the majority of these fields prefer graduate degree holders (there are, of course, opportunities for Bachelor’s level degree holders, but the number of opportunities open widely for those with graduate degrees). explore the following website from the American Psychological Association (APA) before answering the below questions: Based upon your research on this website, answer the following questions: 1.  Generally speaking, what pieces of information are applicants to graduate programs in psychology required to provide (e.g., academic information, standardized testing, recommendations, personal information, etc…)? 2.  are the costs for graduate programs?  types of financial aid are available?  are other options (e.g., merit fellowships, assistantships, outside employment)?  How much debt do graduate students generally take on and does that vary based on degree (masters vs. doctoral) or program (e.g., Ph.D. vs. Psy.D.)? 3.  about accreditation?  How important is it?  How can prospective students differentiate between quality programs and programs that could actually hinder their chances for professional internships or future employment?
