Preparing Undergraduates for Paraprofessional Positions: What, Where, When, and How are Ethical Issues Taught?
Many undergraduate faculty members are concerned about what their students do after graduation. Because numerous students enter the work force after completing bachelor's degrees in psychology, individual schools have begun to survey their alumni to obtain a clearer picture of the types of jobs available to them. Although many different jobs have been reported, psychology majors are employed in a variety of human service settings. This article raises questions about undergraduate preparation in ethical issues, discusses appropriate paraprofessional roles, and suggests what should be taught, where and when it might be included in the curriculum, and how it might be covered.
