BA in Psychology and Minor in Political Science, UB

PhD Student, Social Psychology

“I don’t think I realized just how well UB prepared me for graduate school until I started interviewing for PhD programs. Professors I interviewed with would comment on how well trained I was and would ask what it was like to be a UB student. What prepared me best were the multiple opportunities to conduct my own research and the the hands-on mentorship from my professors. I learned how to take feedback, come up with theory-based research questions, use statistical software, and most importantly I learned that the psychology professors at UB care so much about their students. Having such great mentors during undergrad not only helped me get into grad school—they guided me in choosing the best graduate program for me. I’m starting graduate school as a much more confident student than I was before.” – Haemi Nam
