The Psychology department has an incredibly welcoming atmosphere. In just my second semester, I'm able to work with a faculty member on research that's applicable to my career path, an opportunity that is only possible in a department that is fully committed to the growth of its students.

The program has inspiring professors, a wealth of interesting courses, and rewarding hands-on opportunities that gave me the chance to dive deeper into the whole science. I was given so many experiences to learn that it influenced my decision to learn even more by attending graduate school.
