University of the Incarnate Word '14
Majoring in Psychology
Member since 7/3/2012
I came to the University because of its reputation and so far it has lived up to the expectations. The class load is challenging but manageable. The professors tend to be very helpful and accommodating but as with any school their are a few exceptions(don't worry they do allow you to do teacher evaluations at the end of semester). The curriculum leaves room for you to take class you want in combination with classes you need. Registration can be a bit of a hassle but if you just keep trying you'll eventually get through. Also have some back up classes in case you can't get the ones you want.
As a psychology major I feel I made the right choice. I've learned a lot in my classes and have made a lot of friends. The only word of caution in dealing with this major is that classes fill up fast. Teachers try to be accommodating with overrides but that's not always possible.
I'm in the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and have been more than satisfied with the level of professionalism displayed by the staff. I'm a Psychology major and the instructors are very helpful and easy to get in contact. My personal adviser is very helpful with not only my current classes and helping me with graduate school. If you get to know them on a personal level, they will help you above and beyond any expectations.
The process of getting into my Psychology major is relatively easy. Once accepted to the University changing majors is easy and the classes required for the major are laid out in meetings with adviser. There is no additional application process for certain majors.
