What were you doing before coming to Pepperdine GSEP?

Before I began the graduate program at Pepperdine I had just graduated from UC Irvine with a Bachelor in Psychology. My fascination of the field led me to Pepperdine to continue learning about psychology.

What are your career goals post-GSEP?/What are you doing with your GSEP degree?

Medicine has always been an interest of mine and the program's psychopharmacology class revived my affinity for the inner workings of the brain. After graduating from GSEP I plan on attending medical school to study psychiatry.

Why did you choose to come to Pepperdine GSEP?

I was referred by a close friend who was already in the program. She encouraged me to check it out for myself, so I did. Positive conversations with students and faculty assured me that I would be challenged and learn a lot. Also, classes take place in the evenings which was very important to me when I was deciding on a graduate program because, like many other students, I work during the day and needed a program that would accommodate my schedule.
