Why Bryant?

"Bryant allows me to explore both paths of education — behavioral science and business — in a more cohesive way."

Why psychology at Bryant?

I knew the School of Health and Behavioral Sciences was going to be a close-knit community and that I had the ability to create more personal relationships with my professors, which means a lot to me. 

And Bryant allows me to explore both paths of education — behavioral science and business — in a more cohesive way.

Do you have a favorite professor?

Professor Joe Trunzo's passion for psychology is absolutely infectious. He comes from such an extensive background that it makes learning fascinating; he can talk about so many personal experiences. He is wholeheartedly for the students.  

You have two minors. How do they complement your major? 

I am a management minor as well as a women, gender, and sexuality studies minor. I chose management to have a better sense of how to handle the different groups of people that I’ll encounter in my life. If I open my own practice one day, these skills will come in handy. 

I chose WGSS for my second minor because I want to pursue a career in sex therapy. I think human sexuality is one of the most fascinating things on the planet, and I know with the faculty on staff, I will dive deeper into the study more than I ever imagined. 

How are you involved on campus?

I am a proud member of the Women's Bowling Team!

Bryant's purposeful student life delivers co-curricular immersion with an inspiring, collegial community. Students forge deep connections that last a lifetime.

“I really feel like Bryant prepared me for the next chapter of my life. Bryant has given me the tools and resources I need to get internships at a professional level. As a student, I was able to complete three different internships at three different companies.”

“I liked the quality of the Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics so much that I decided to get my MBA. The certificate plugged right into the MBA, so I didn’t have to take those courses again. It was the perfect pathway for me.”
