Reviews of BS in Psychology graduates:

V. A.
◈ Studied Bachelor of Science in Psychology
◈ At St. Scholastica's College
◈ Graduated 1999

list bulletAbout my college education: A lot of people say that high school marks the best years of your life. Although I did have a couple of great friends in high school, it was in College that I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

St. Scholastica's College, Manila in the 1990's was an all-girl's school. As a Scholastican or Kulasa at the time, the male Scholastican was a rare breed - encountered only if you were taking up Fine Arts or Music, or in an organization that was of similar relevance.

I found it interesting being in St. Scholastica's College-Manila. In the middle of busy Manila side streets and two largely populated and hugely popular De La Salle institutions, it was a breath of fresh air, especially for a young lady who wanted to bloom, grow, and find her voice.

list bulletMy current job: I serve as Administrative support to an executive in another tertiary institution.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: With Psychology, you have the option to choose a career in business, law, medicine, or education because of the practical applications of the course.

It also helps in my daily dealings with different people/personalities, whether professional or personal.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Actually, I was already being asked to work even before I graduated, but I had requested that I be hired after graduation so that I could focus on my academic requirements.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Psychology: I would recommend this course only to those who have a passion for it. But I can honestly say that Psychology may lead to many paths, so you must choose wisely.
