What inspired you to choose your intended major?

"I chose to major in psychology because I am fascinated by the subject. I enjoy learning why people think and act certain ways based on both genetic and environmental factors. The CCP psychology courses I took in high school are what introduced me to this field of study."

"After I graduate, I plan on going to graduate school to earn my EdS. After that, I plan on working as a school psychologist."
