“When I think back to my time as a psychology major at UB, I remember the dedicated faculty, diverse coursework, research opportunities, and the honor to serve as the President of Psi Chi, The International Honors Society in Psychology. My major in psychology laid the foundation for my graduate degree in Higher Education Administration and my current role as a Career Coach at the University of South Carolina. I refer to the theories, techniques, and research I learned in my psychology coursework when working with my clients. My advice to students considering a psychology major at UB is to realize that a major in psychology is versatile and can truly start you on any career path. Whether you’re considering graduate school, professional school, or a career, the UB psychology program provides theoretical and practical education that is applicable in psychology and beyond.” – Ashley Byrd-White
