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!

A Connected Community

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

“After college I’ll be moving to San Francisco and working as an actuary analyst for Uber. Bryant has really prepared me for that career. There are always professors who are willing to help you and amazing resources to ensure your success.”
