Student Comments

‘I loved this program! I think that is due to my strong interest with how the brain works. I like how everyone was able to engage in discussion and that we were able to watch really cool TED talks and movies/documentary. It was an overall great experience.’

‘I really liked the way the class was taught. It was really interesting and I felt really comfortable asking questions. I liked the combination of learning and mindfulness activities.’

‘My program was very informative and I learned a lot about mental disorders that I did not know before. Also, I like all the activities we did especially the art therapy.’

‘I enjoyed the structure of the clinical psychology class, having lecture periods along with interactive learning. I also enjoyed listening to the visitors’ stories and information.’
