Alumni Reflections

"I believe (or at least like to think) that I have made many wise decisions in my life. One decision I have made that I know was possibly the wisest of all, was majoring in Psychology. I have used all that I have learned studying Psychology at St. Mary's College of Maryland on a daily basis. Since obtaining my degree I have been employed by two highly accredited organizations that have provided me with numerous life-changing experiences. I worked as a Caseworker with the Choice Program where I worked with at-risk and gang-involved adolescents and their families. I then worked for the Institute for Family Centered Services as a Family Centered Specialist, where I provided home-based family therapy. Had I not received a degree in Psychology from such an incredible college filled with such highly-educated and motivated professors, I would not be writing this post about my past successes. Best major there is (in my opinion)." ~Brian Mansky '07
