In this hour-long webinar primarily aimed at undergraduates majoring in psychology or considering the major (but open to all) two guest speakers and Professors-for-a-Day will recount how they used their education as Psychology majors at the University of Missouri to develop interesting and stimulating careers in education and science. Their interactions with the moderator, with each other, and with the web audience through a question-and-answer format will focus on their perspectives as to how they succeeded, what career challenges they faced, advice for those soon leaving college, and what aspects of their Psychology training were of most use to them.
