WEEK 4 ASSIGNMENT

By Wednesday at 11:55pm Eastern Time please post a 300 word minimum length “Initial Post” in response to the topic requirements on each forum during its scheduled week.

 

For this Forum, in your Initial       Post you will share with your classmates your observations from your       research on Learning/Memory and Psychopathology as       subspecialties and career options.

Please be sure to address BOTH       subspecialties in your response to each question.  Points       will be deducted if both subspecialties are not clearly and separately       addressed.

1) After researching these areas, do you find them to be career       possibilities you are interested in or careers that don’t capture your       interest?  Why or why not?

2) What is at least one thing you learned about each of the two       subspecialties that you did not previously know?

3) Describe a “real-world” application for each of the two subspecialties.        How could knowledge gained through the pursuit of each subspecialty help       us to understand everyday problems, dilemmas, or situations?        Note:  your answer does not have to be specific to psychology as a       field.  Think broadly; psychological principles can apply to many       different fields.
