The official peer-reviewed scholarly journal of the American Psychological Association, American Psychologist publishes current and timely high-impact papers of broad interest, including empirical reports, meta-analyses, and scholarly reviews covering science, practice, education, and policy. Contributions often address national and international policy issues.
Earlier this year, APA published a special issue of American Psychologist: “Undergraduate Education in Psychology: Current Status and Future Directions.” The issue, edited by guest editors John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP, and Robin Hailstorks, PhD, takes an in-depth look at emergent trends in psychology undergraduate education and offers new guidelines for educators and students. The articles featured in this special issue are:
- Undergraduate Study in Psychology: Curriculum and Assessment
- Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major: Version 2.0
- Strengthening Introductory Psychology: A New Model for Teaching the Introductory Course
- The New Medical College Admission Test: Implications for Teaching Psychology
- Internationalizing Undergraduate Psychology Education: Trends, Techniques, and Technologies
