I am currently a doctoral candidate in the Clinical Psychology program (Clinical Neuropsychology major area of study) at the University of Houston. The M.A. program at San Diego State University allowed me to reach my goals through its excellent training in data analysis and research methods, allowing me to gain experience in conducting quality research, and providing supportive mentorship towards professional development in the field of psychology. I would like prospective students to know that the M.A. program at SDSU provides an ideal path towards preparation into doctoral programs in psychology, particularly for trainees looking to solidify their area of interest and gain experience in research.
