Albany State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
I am a recent graduate of Albany State University where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. I graduated as an Honors Program Merit Scholar and Magna Cum Laude (3.76/4.0 grade point average). Albany State University has definitely prepared me for my future endeavors in the field of Psychology. I have learned that Psychology is a very diverse field with a variety of career choices that are not limited to being a therapist. While at Albany State University, I took advantage of opportunities to apply what I learned in the classroom to everyday life by: conducting empirical research, attending and presenting at research conferences, and completing an internship. My professors were always supportive, and as a student I was highly motivated. I have chosen to pursue Forensic and Legal Psychology for my graduate studies. My career objectives are to work with disadvantaged populations, who are typically labeled as mentally ill, delinquent, and/or felons.
The University at Albany has a rigorous Biology Department. Although it is rigorous, it is well worth it in the long run. The professors expect 150 percent out of every student and it is his/hers responsibility to keep up on the work. Like most colleges, some professors are better than others and therefore it is important to be able to adapt. Due to the volume of students at this school there are endless opportunities to get involved with the students and community.
My first few years were at a larger school and I transferred over to this one. The setting was completely different and the professors really wanted to see you exceed. At my other school, the professors did not care if you showed up for class at all, and barely seemed to notice ones that were failing. However, at ASU, there is no chance of that. Attendance is a must and some professors even give you homework. You are expected to pay attention and be a part of class discussions.
