Psychology Program Alumni Perspective

“My time spent at Alvernia has been a terrific experience particularly because when part of the Psychology program you are surrounded by a genuine faculty that cares greatly about you and your success. Each faculty member strives to teach to you all of their skills, knowledge, and experiences which has proved to be beneficial when entering practicum experiences and now the job market. The strengths of the faculty become part of you because of their passion and desire to create well-rounded psychology students."
Kayla Morgan, Class 2013
