Reviews of AB in Psychology graduates:

C. V.
◈ Studied BA Psychology minor in Special Education
◈ At Miriam College
◈ Graduated 2016

list bulletWhy did I choose Psychology: I wanted to study the art in the behavior of human beings. I believe that each and everyone of us is different and unique and I wanted to know how and what makes us special from the others, how behaviors, characteristics and attitudes are made.

list bulletAbout my college education: BA Psychology is a lighter course than BS Psychology. It's the counter-part of those who are planning to study in med schools after the undergrad course (although I don't get it why there's such thing as BS Psych non-med-track course). Students of BA Psych have the option to take minor in Sped. If not, they have the freedom to choose any electives they want each semester by their 2nd year.

BA Psychology is mostly about research, so if you're not into reading, you might find the course difficult. There are only a few students who shifted to another course. Most of the exams are multiple choice + essays. The most essential trait to fit in this course is being understanding.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently working under Pag-IBIG Fund, Human Resource Services Group, under the Employee Career Management and Training Division.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes and No. Since my course is theoretical, the things I've learned in school cannot be taken practically, but yes, I was able to use it when analyzing the employees that I deal with everyday. However, the things I've learned in school made me a better person since my course is therapeutical. I was able to understand myself first and became a stronger woman before I graduate.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: The job was already waiting for me before I graduated.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Psychology: Yes, because the course can give you a wide job opportunities.
