Liaison Major: Psychology
I have attended classes here at the University since 2002. I graduated with a BA in English as well as a BS in Psychology in 2007 and continued my academic career earning a Master of Arts in General Psychology in 2010. As an undergraduate student, I joined Psi Chi which was then the National Honor Society of Psychology; it has recently become an international honor society. I became President of the society in 2006 and continued my Presidency into my graduate career. As an alumnus, I am still a part of Psi Chi, and I encourage you to contact me if you are interested in joining. I hope you will visit the UNF Psi Chi website at http://www.unf.edu/coas/psychology/Psi_Chi_Honor_Society.aspx to learn a bit more about the society.
As an undergraduate student I have taken classes on directed independent studies as well as supervised research. As a result, I have had the opportunity to present at a SEPA (Southeastern Psychological Association) conference, do poster presentations here at UNF and conduct my own research study, all of which helped to prepare me for the thesis process as a graduate student. If you are interested in attending a graduate program, I would be happy to answer any of your questions; especially about how to tailor your undergraduate education to make your application competitive, about the general application process, taking the GRE and the thesis portion of the program.
The university is filled with diverse opportunities for you to gain working knowledge within your field of study and to tailor your education to your goals. I encourage you to make use of my own experiences here at the university to help you reach those goals.
I look forward to getting to know you and hope that you have an excellent day.
Your academic advisor,
LeAnn Anderson, M.A. Psychology
