I currently work in the mental health field and advancing higher education in health psychology will enhance my knowledge and ability to support, educate, and be a voice for voiceless. My professor has been a positive influence and has provided me with fundamental feedback to support my educational growth. As a Christian, finding a school that provided a support for my Christianity was very crucial. UNW provides me that opportunity and I am grateful for that!
The morals of the school really coincide with my morals; that’s a big thing. I’ve trusted everyone from the professors to the advisors. I can trust them to have my best interest in mind.
The Health Psychology prepared me to work with people holistically. The classes prepared me both for direct contact with people but also working in organizational management, both intended for health promotion. The professors were amazing, answering questions, and providing meaningful teaching all with a Christian focus.
