James McCarty, 2013
Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology
Penn State Berks

"The Applied Psychology Program at Penn State Berks has helped me to not only grow as an individual, but also as a professional within my field of study. The degree itself is broad, however the internships that I have obtained through the program have helped me to gain vital on-the-job experience and apply what I am learning in the classroom to the "real world" and really tailor my degree to what benefits my academic desires."
