The text offers in-depth discussions on key topics, including: the biological basis of language, perceptual development, grammatical development, development of lexical knowledge, social aspects of language, bilingualism, the effect of language on thought, cognitive processing in language production and comprehension, language-related delays and disorders, and language late in life.
Hettich: Your Undergraduate Degree in PsychologyInnovative strategies for psychology majors to survive and thrive in the workforceNearly 100,000 students graduate each year with a bachelor's degree in psychology, and a majority of these students will enter the workforce instead of pursuing a graduate degree.

Eric Landrum provide innovative strategies and tools for succeeding after college with an undergraduate degree in psychology.
Drawing on current research data, applied theory, and both academic and workplace experiences, they help stimulate self-reflection and improve decision making as students approach their careers.
The text covers key topics in the college-to-career transition, including career planning and development, identifying and transferring marketable skills, building and sustaining strong networks, understanding what employers want and don't want, coping with personal life changes, becoming a valued employee, and more.
