Why I Chose My Major

Alexandria, Junior

I chose this major

"because I love the mathematical and social aspect of research, and how research can completely change social life. Also, because it's applied, I get to actually get my hands on something which is so much fun."

Tanya, Junior

I chose this major...

"to have an opportunity to gain the education and knowledge about Psychology and the education of social science research. I would like to one day be a Mental Health Psychiatrist, and be able to understand the mental processing of it all, and how to do social research correctly and ethically."

Aja, Junior

I chose this major...

"because I am always questioning things. this gives me a chance to try and find the answers. Applied Social Research gives me a way to turn my natural noseyness into a career."

Zachary, Senior

I chose this major...

"because I am interested in getting a job in market analytical work. For many reasons (financial, scheduling, coursework, etc) I decided to pursue only a minor in commerce, as well as statistics. Once I made this decision, I was looking for a major that could tie these things together. When I was introduced to the Applied Social Research major, I thought it would work well with my majors."
