This weekly podcast will touch on a new topic every week that is essential for your success as an undergrad student going for a bachelor's in psychology and beyond. Topics include, tips and tricks for mid-terms, finals, and graduate entry tests; which classes you should take, and how to apply what you learn in classes to the real-world. Let's get psyched!
What can I say? This is the LAST episode.
(Update) - I was going to release a bonus episode but unfortunately my recording software is not working for the time being. I plan to get this recorded as soon as possible after The Last Episode. Thank you for your patience.
