Allison BeckmannBA Psychology, 2017

Iona’s Psychology BA program provided me with exceptional educational opportunities both inside and outside the classroom that were instrumental in my gaining acceptance into a clinical psychology doctoral program. Iona faculty encouraged my participation in their research projects and mentored my own research endeavors. With the support of an Iona student/faculty summer research grant, I was able to collaborate with a faculty member on a project that explored the development of psychological safety in temporary teams. I had the opportunity to present my research at professional local and national conferences, such as those of the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science. As I look forward to starting my doctoral program in clinical psychology at Gallaudet, I feel that Iona's Psychology program has given me the skills, knowledge and experience that I need to succeed in graduate school and beyond.
