Psychology major Alexis Peat just received the good news that she is accepted to the Forensic Psychology program at Arizona State University.

As she reflects on the psychology program here at Stevenson University, Alexis feels very well-prepared. “The Psychology curriculum has equipped me with a well-rounded knowledge of human behavior, which is crucial for understanding criminal behavior,” explains Alexis. “I have also taken classes in human development, biology, social psychology, and more. The psychology program is flexible such that I can take many electives that are related to forensic psychology and criminology. Through these many classes, I then decide that forensic psychology is the right path for me.”

What about research methods and statistics courses? Alexis thinks that they are just as equally important. “These courses have given me the opportunity to improve my analytical, statistical, and communication skills. By presenting my research at the SU Psychology Student Research Showcase every semester, I can articulate my ideas very well. Overall, I am very glad that I chose Stevenson’s undergraduate psychology program to prepare me for the forensic psychology field.
