2017 / Bachelor of Science in Psychology
My science classes at Burman University prepared me well to pursue a career in the medical field. The practical aspects of my psychology courses prepared me well for clinical reasoning and client interaction. Anthropology classes and study tours to Costa Rica and Ecuador provided me with an increased understanding of a variety of cultures with tangible experiences that helped science come alive. The student life activities provided by BUSA and Campus Ministries helped me create lifelong friendships and a deeper spiritual connection with God.
