Introducing: Erin Campbell, Student Speak blogger

Posted by Hunter the Ridgeback on August 29, 2017 at 9:00 AM

Name: Erin Campbell

Program of study: Forensic Psychology

Year of study: Third 

Why did you choose your program?
I actually started out in my first year at a different university in a general undeclared arts program. After attending my first psychology lecture I knew this is what I needed to do, I love it. Like pretty much everyone I want to help people, and I plan to do this through the role of a psychologist. Forensic Psychology provides the education I need to help those who have any interaction with the criminal justice system or the law. UOIT provided me with the opportunity to study this at the undergraduate level and I’m really glad I chose to come here to study this.
