As I always say “the day you stop learning, is the day you stop living”. In its general,

broadest sense, lifelong learning means a continuous, abstract lifelong phenomenon of learning;

it cannot be thwarted by age or the passage of time. It is holistic learning, including intellectual,

social, physical and emotional development. It is manifest through both formal and informal

education and continues from birth through the end of life. Lifelong learning is a concept that is

fascinating to me; the act of learning something new every day of your life is one of the joys of

living. This is one of the reasons why I choose to go into the field of psychology. Psychology is

based around the thoughts and behaviors of human beings, which can be a process that changes,

matures and shifts from person to person, day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute, but being

able to learn something new and help someone in the process is always rewarding.


       The field of psychology is an ever changing and ever growing field. In knowing and

understanding that concept, to thrive in this field a person has to stabilize themselves in the

fundamentals of the field; the basics, the building blocks, which create the field of psychology.

These building blocks include knowledge of the basic principles, theories and perspective of

psychology and how to apply these principles, theories and perspectives. Next, is

communication skills, the techniques and ability to give and receive accurate information; oral

and written. Knowledge and the importance of research is also a building block in the

psychology field; knowing and understanding the methods and protocols of research. In the field

of psychology, knowledge of ethics and diversity is also important. Psychology is a science that

deals with mental processes and behaviors of human beings which can be difficult to evaluate or

define, so having these building blocks can make the process a little bit easier.
In evaluating the education I received in my psychology program, overall I feel as though

I was given the proper information and guidance in learning these particular concepts. The

program began with classes explaining in detail the field of psychology by introducing the

student to the founders of the psychology field and their perspectives and theories. From there,

they explained how the first theories and perspectives were analyzed and progressed into other

theories and perspectives, leaving you with an understanding of how different theories evolved

and where they originated. In supplying the student with this information, the program was also

centered on teaching the student how to use these theories and perspectives in everyday life. By

doing this, it prepares the students for dealing with their own clients, patients, or students of their

own. In stepping out on my own as an undergraduate in the field of Psychology, I am well

prepared with knowledge and experience. This program not only prepared me for this particular

field but it prepared me for life. Because of the intense assignments and deadlines, I am now an

expert of time management and organization. The strict requirements of written assignments

supplied me with the ability to efficiently communicate verbally and with written

communication. The interactions with classmates provided me the techniques and skills needed

to be able to effectively acquire and maintain healthy professional and personal relationships.

Last but not least, Argosy University understands that the world of technology and the

advancement in technology is a benefit for all walks of life. Because of this, they require that we

use it and all its advancements on a daily basis. I am now well rounded in all fields of

technology and ready to take on whatever is handed to me.
