Undergraduate Psychology Major Learning Goals and Outcomes: A Report

Identifies ten achievement goals for undergraduate psychology students--the first five pertain to science and application, and the remaining five to liberal arts, and career and personal development. This document is not APA policy. According to Task Force Chair, Dr. Jane Halonen, James Madison University, it is intended as "aspirational" and an evolving guide.
