    I was really confused while choose a college for myself but as soon as I came across this college, I knew that this would be a great fit for me the tuition was under my budget and the level of diversity this college had was just so impressive for me, hence I was convinced to apply here. I applied here by paying around $80 for the online application mode.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course is providing me with the opportunity to develop and carry out supervised, independent research. Pursing this program was an excellent option as I'm interested in pursuing graduate work in psychology or another discipline. The program is training us for a variety of possible careers in psychology, including clinical or counseling practice, academic research, human resources, or criminal justice.
