I chose Grove City College because of its Christian values and small campus community, but my attraction to the school went much deeper. Being exposed to the strong character and work ethic of friends and family from the College, I knew that it could be a place where I could reach my potential.
I chose to major in psychology because of the unique nature of the program. Unlike many other schools, Grove City College requires a research course, in which students plan, develop, and present a study. This gives Grovers an edge when competing for coveted spots in graduate school.
There are so many directions to go with the Department of Psychology. Students can choose a variety of classes such as Marriage and Family and Sensation and Perception and pursue all fields of psychology, from counseling and social work to research and neuropsychology. This gives students the option of focusing on their goal or experimenting with different options in the field.
The relationship between faculty and students is just one example of how the department cares for student’s success. Professors take the time to get to know their students; offering support, advice and prayer—not to mention assistance with academics. Students are challenged to have a strong work ethic and rewarded for it.
