Going to school while working either part-time or full-time
can be a challenge, but Argosy University offers psychology majors a chance to do both,
with a wide selection of bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in a
variety of psychology concentrations at 19 locations across the nation. Many of
the psychology degree programs offer online courses, which allow students to
attend class from the comfort of their home.
It is not unusual for working adults to want to return to
college in order to get an education or obtain a graduate degree. Many adults
return to school at some time during their working lives to boost promotion
prospects or fill in gaps in their education. Remembering to keep a straight head is
essential for succeeding as both a student and a member of the workforce.
It is very important to have support from family and friends
while navigating the hectic world of a working student. Even enjoying a good relationship with a boss
or employer can make it easier to work and attend school. For example, an
employer may accept an employee leaving an hour early to get to class if the
employee negotiates either a small pay cut or make-up hours beforehand.
Maintaining relationships with friends and loved ones is crucial. Family
members are more understanding about the need for a quiet study space and a tight
budget if promises are made--and kept--to set aside one evening a week for
Another big tip for psychology majors to remember is to not take too many classes
at a time. Three or four classes may not sound like a lot, but the homework and
study requirements can quickly become overwhelming. Students are generally
impatient to get their degree, but trying to do too much will result in burnout
and failure to complete classes.
Students need to plan a day or two off to relieve stress and
relax. This means eliminating time-wasters such as social networking, computer
games, TV and non-essential shopping trips during work and study times.
Getting a degree and going to work at the same time requires
dedication, patience and a little know-how.
This post is brought to you by Argosy University. Drawing
upon our more than 30-year history of granting degrees in professional
psychology, Argosy University has developed a curriculum that focuses on
interpersonal skills and practical experience alongside academic learning.
Because getting a degree is one thing. Succeeding, quite another.
