"The program is great if you're looking into a career of research in Psychology as it provides a great foundation of psychological concepts and research methodologies. However for those looking into a career in HR, PR, marketing, that isnt academia focused, this program might not have the best resources to prepare you for a future in those fields."

"I attended the University of Mary Washington (UMW) to earn my B.S. in Psychology. I loved UMW and the Psychology department. The campus is beautiful and safe, with plenty of study areas and places to hang out on campus. The Psychology department is very close knit, including the professors. You get the close relationships with staff as you would in graduate school. Furthermore, the coursework required as part of my B.S. truly prepared me for graduate school. I was able to test out of my statistics class because UMW prepared me so well! I will say, however, that I felt I didn't have an opportunity to interact with students from other departments very much since I was a commuter student. I have heard that other students who lived on campus (at least their freshman year) did not have this same problem. UMW is also lacking in diversity, which is an important thing to note. Overall, I highly recommend UMW!"

"Mary Washington is a fantastic, quaint, liberal arts school in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I always had small class sizes, which meant I could actually interact with the whole class as well as my professors. Housing was on-campus and I could always ride my bike or walk rather than drive. Fredericksburg has a lot of amazing shops and restaurants, plus it is only an hour and a half from Washington, D.C, which is perfect for sight-seeing and adventures. Mary Wash has a lot of clubs and organizations that ensure no one feels left out. It's the best!"

"I liked how small the school was because teachers actually got to know us and we knew the other students in our major. It was large enough though that there were plenty of choices for different classes beyond the standard gen eds. Beautiful campus and actual campus events often, including little booths in random places on campus walk sometimes. I thought UMW was perfect."

"Small school with smaller classes and a manageable campus. What I was looking for from a college experience. Good clubs program."
